Publisher Comments:

A joyful picture book about family love from the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!

Big or small,

Furry or not,

Here or there,

Inside or out,

Everyone hugs all over the world.

With its loving, simple text and bold, beautiful artwork, this is a perfect board book for baby showers, first birthdays, or a baby's first first Christmas, Hanukkah, or Valentine's Day.  And it's not just about hugging! Little ones can learn about opposites and about animals and their habitats in this story too.  Mega-selling author and artist Felicia Bond had crafted a perfect picture book filled with animals hugging across the globe that celebrates the universality of love.

Review:

"This jubilant ode to the joys of hugging boldly announces its message on the first page: 'Everyone hugs all over the world.' What follows are tidy snippets of text that declare what animals like to hug ('Cats hug/ Dogs hug/ Bears hug/ Hogs hug'), as well as where, how, and when this hugging takes place. Bond (the If You Give... series) works in torn- and cut-paper collage, her cheerful animal families showing various happy emotions, from elated roosters hugging on an indoor perch to contented rabbits embracing under an abstract sun. Stark white pages contrast with the bright colors and soft textures of the various papers Bond uses; geographical locations are just hinted at — a few brushstrokes create a snowy scene for two deer, while a polka-dot sun hangs over foxlike robots that prove that, even in the future, hugging is still a celebrated way to show one's affection. The book's many whimsical touches should prove both comforting and entertaining. Agency: namelos. Ages 3 — up. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
