A baby duckling and his mother and tiny friends around the pond express themselves with hugs during a fun and event-filled day.
School Library JournalPreS-Hugs are for "a cold winter day....to chase monsters away....for...getting so tall...for no reason at all." This tender story explores the many reasons for a duckling to receive a hug during a day spent with friends that include a mouse, dragonfly, ladybug, fish, and caterpillar. But the last hug is the best-it's the one that the duckling gives its parent. Significantly refreshing is the unknown gender of both. The rhythmic text is set in large print against the soft pastels and white background of the pictures. Winter's illustrations provide a warm and flowing connection to the words, creating an experience that children are certain to enjoy.-Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
