Im Going to Give You a Bear Hug!, written by bestselling author Caroline B. Cooney, is a playful and comforting bedtime book that imagines all the wonderful ways a child might give and receive a hug.
Whether its a big bear, gasp for air, knock over a chair hug or a wet and drippy, slimy, slippy fish hug, children will giggle their way through all the imaginative examples. Cooneys sweet and simple rhymes encourage playful interaction between parent and child and ultimately help them wind down before they snuggle into bed and drift off to sleep.
Caroline B. Cooney was born in New York, grew up in Connecticut, and now lives in South Carolina. Caroline is the author of 90 Young Adult novels in many genres, and her books have sold over fifteen million copies. Im Going to Give You a Bear Hug is her first picture book. Its based on a verse she wrote for her own children, Louisa, Sayre and Harold, who are grown now.

We really loved reading to our girls every single night when they were younger. Now they are older and read chapter books...or should I say "devour" chapter books? We still do read aloud and together from time to time, but I really treasure those night we had. There were wordless book, there were picture books, we read some chapter books, we read devotionals. It's a precious time together at the end of sometimes hard and challenging days. I'm definitely not a touchy-feely person, and Physical Touch is not on the top of my 5 Love Languages, but sometimes we all need a good hug, whether it's a horse hug or a cat hug or a best friend hug. :)

VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sweetness booms on every pageJanuary 24, 2017VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is giggly, tug-at-your-heart, tickle-your-funny-bone charming. There is just so much fun and, yes, sweetness blooming on each and every page.
Just how many different kinds of hugs are there? Bear hug? Well, it would be crushing, big, furry, warm. But what about all those other hugs?
I just love Cooney's lyrical text as she hugs her way through the cornucopia of hugs ....
I'm going to give you a cat hug. A simple purr, stroke my fur, don't do more than that hug.
....a sheep hug. A lamb's wool, blanketful, don't make a peep hug.
The illustrations by Tim Warnes are sweetness and charm rollicking with fun and gentlenesss. Softly colored but bright enough to engage the attention of the young child. A child can picture him or herself amidst all this fun.
And as it began.... "way beyond compare hug," it ends with a bear hug that is "A just right turn off the light, sleep tight, say your prayers and kiss good night, way beyond compare hug."
I highly recommend this book.

Laura of Harvest Lane CottageCarthage, MOAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Cuddle Up, Give Me a Hug, Share a Giggle Book GiveawayJanuary 3, 2017Laura of Harvest Lane CottageCarthage, MOAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! is absolutely adorable! My 15 and 19 year old girls piled on the bed with papa and I one night, and papa read it to us. What a treat! I miss the days of littles piling on my bed to listen to bedtime stories.
When my children were little, we developed a number of ways to give kisseschipmunk kisses, butterfly kisses, bunny kisses, fishy kisses, raccoon kisses and such. This book of creative hugs brought back the memories for this momma.
It will be quite some time yet before my teens are ready to marry and give me grandlittles, but I'm saving this book. It's one that I think will help any young family enjoy making memories together. I imagine a whole lot of hugging and giggling and maybe a little tickling going on. ~smile~

Im Going to Give You a Bear Hug is a childrens fiction picture book. It was written by Caroline B. Cooney. Tim Warnes drew the precious pictures that accompany it.
In this book, the narrator promises all sorts of hugs from all sorts of animals a dog, a cat, a horse, even a whale! There were several more animals that I didnt even list! All of the hugs are given in fun and whimsical ways, to make the reader giggle.
This would be a fun book to read. Id definitely recommend it to young readers, and all those who read to them.
