Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Macdonald asks readers to consider the ins and outs of hugging, including whom to hug (porcupines are too prickly, for instance), how, and when. The author offers good advice, such as, "Never hug anyone who's angry. It can take time to get over it, so just be patient." The book could be used for preschoolers learning to respect the personal space and boundaries of others. Christy's digitally rendered illustrations have a warm and fuzzy quality that enhances and elevates the text. The expressive kids' and animals' faces reinforce the moods and feelings depicted in each statement. Pair this book with Beth Shoshan's Cuddle! (Parragon, 2007) or Joanne Ryder's Won't You Be My Hugaroo? (Harcourt, 2006) for storytime, or to enjoy one-on-one.—Amy Commers, South St. Paul Public Library, MN
