A picture book celebrating the power of hugs from award-winning creators, author Lisa Wheeler and illustrator Lisk Feng

A Hug Is for Holding Me is a sweet, cozy book about love and affection and invites children to engage with the natural world in a fresh, new way. Some hugs are tight and some hugs are snug . . . but guess who gives the BEST hugs?

“Feng’s artwork is lovely, stylized flora and fauna filling the pages, and the love between the two is evident.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Using allusions to nature, Wheeler writes lyrically about what a hug can be . . . Detailed art by Feng has a retro feel. The ornament-like abundance of insects, flowers, and other natural objects brushes this familial journey with magic.” —Publishers Weekly
