Have a Hug!

You should never hug tomorrow when you can hug today.
But which hug will you choose?

We love reading this book. I thought it was adorable as I flipped through the pages in the store and loved it even more when I saw the smiles on my 7 month old daughter's face as I read it to her. I like to go back to the "Mommy hugs" page a few times though :) My favorite part of the book is that the words aren't predictable. They are easy to read by children, but whimsical and surprising too.

I give this book to friends who experience loss of family members or pets. I may not be able to be there to give you a hug but here is one anyway.
