With everything going on in the world, we could all use a hug. Luckily, on this podcast episode of Read Out Loud, KidLit icon, Caroline Cooney reads, I’M GOING TO GIVE YOU A BEAR HUG. It’s a book which offers “a gasp for air, knock over a chair hug,” which seems just about the right strength for us.
ABOUT THE BOOK
I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug!
Written by Caroline B. Cooney, illustrated by Tim Warnes
Whether it’s 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. Cooney’s 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.
