Editorial Reviews

How many mommy hugs does it take to say I love you? This board book offers an answer we can all embrace.
Publishers Weekly
As Mother's Day approaches, several titles celebrate matriarchs everywhere. A follow-up to Daddy Hugs 1, 2, 3, Mommy Hugs by Karen Katz incorporates her signature dazzling patterns and candy-bright palette to count up from "one nuzzle-wuzzle wake-up hug" to 10 "I love you... good-night hugs" for a wide-eyed toddler and his or her puppy and teddy bear. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Loving mother/child embraces are counted, from "one nuzzle-wuzzle wake-up hug" to "ten `I love you...' good-night hugs." The baby's day also includes encouraging "two `Choo-choo! Open wide!' yummy hugs" at breakfast, comforting "`I'll always catch you!' sliding hugs" at the park, and so on. Each spread features the number word in lower-case letters, the numeral, and countable heart shapes. Katz's trademark round-headed characters are cheerful and exude warmth. The sunny pictures capture familiar activities, and a playful puppy is part of the scene. The collage, gouache, and colored-pencil illustrations have polka-dot and floral patterns that add visual interest. This book is great for interactive baby storytimes.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

my daughter loves this book!

Well, I use the Daddy Hugs book as I'm the dad, but I bought this for my wife as she likes the interaction between me and my son. It gives us a fun little book with some small activity we can do (without winding him up too much) to build our relationship with our child. We usually end with this book (or Daddy Hugs...depends on whose reading) as it allows us to hug him and put him to bed right after.

There is no plot with this book but I have come across that a lot with children's books. I like how this shows how much mommy loves the little one and counts how many hugs she gives the baby. The only thing I don't like about this book is that it ends suddenly.
