Big Hug for Little Cubby Lorie Ann Grover
Synopses & Reviews
Cuddle up for a sweet bedtime story!
Little Cub is a cute and curious lion cub on a big adventure. Follow along as he travels with his mother safely by his side, exploring a world full of small discoveries and large wonders.
With lyrical rhymes and cuddly illustrations in a soft padded board book format, BIG HUG FOR LITTLE CUB is a reassuring tale of toddler curiosity and a parent's joy at seeing their little one hard at play from morning till night.
"Readers follow the adventures of a golden yellow lion cub from daybreak to nightfall. Grover narrates the cub's journey in punchy couplets ('We run free./ So much to see./ Grasses sway./ I lead the way') as he pounces after a brown bird (who doesn't seem to mind all that much), rests under a tree with his lioness mother, and tussles with another small lion. Kightley's paintings, if a tad generic in their nonthreatening sweetness, maintain a gentle sense of rowdy fun, and she tucks small details into each scene (a mole here, a beetle there) that invite quiet moments of seek-and-find interactivity. Ages 3 — up. Author's agent: Elizabeth Harding, Curtis Brown." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
