“I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug” was sent to me by Zonderkidz- a division of Zondervan Publishing – free of charge, in exchange for my honest review. “I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug” is a children’s 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 didn’t 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. I’d definitely recommend it to young readers, and all those who read to them.

What child doesn't want a hug at bed time? This beautifully illustrated children's book encourages a bit of silliness and is virtually guaranteed to have everyone in the family going to bed with a smile on their face. I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! is a delightful children's book geared for ages four to eight. The rhyme is simple but so well-worded to keep the young one's interest as they read and gather hugs from many animals such as bears, horses, pigs, fishes, and more that are just so nicely and brightly illustrated. I highly recommend I'm Going to Give you a Bear Hug! I think it would be a regular request for bedtime reading at our house. My son is a little older than the recommended age range but he enjoyed it and it left him smiling. I honestly think it could make pretty much everyone smile. My family truly loved this book--both the beautiful illustrations and the verse. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.

I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! by Caroline B. Cooney is a fun and easy to love book. This is the perfect bedtime or anytime story. In playful verse the book tells all the ways you might receive a hug. "I'm going to give you a bear hug. A show you how much I care hug. A good night Sleep tight Way beyond compare hug" This book creatively explores how a pig, a duck or even a whale might give a hug. It instinctively invites kids to try these hugs out. We weren't half way through and my kids were trying out how these silly hugs might look and feel. I have found that books that aren't fun to read or fun to look at don't get read much at all in our house. Cooney delivers in the fun to read department. The book easily rolls off the tongue. It is the perfect combination of sweet and silly. Tim Warnes illustrations capture the mood of the book perfectly. They are bright, engaging and fit the this book just right. This is a book any child could enjoy and one to add to your bookshelf! I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Booklook Bloggers.

“I'm going to give you a bear hug. A show you how much I care hug. A good night, Sleep tight,Way beyond compare hug.” I'm going to give you a Bear Hug! written by Caroline B Cooney is a bed time book for young children. This hard covered book has brightly colored pages of different animals hugging young children Some of the animals pictured are bear, dog, cat, horse, duck, pig, fish, whale, caterpillar and sheep. This is a cute short story. I look forward to reading this to my grandsons. I like that the author included several different types of animals in the story, especially the fish and the whale. Young children will be able to learn to say the animal names with repeated reading and interaction. For the more active child, this may not be a good book to read before bedtime as they may want to interact like the characters in the story. The book is written for children ages 4 to 8. I think this book is for the child that enjoys being read to, more than for the child learning how to read. Some of the words would be a little hard for the average young reader. With 32 shiny colorful pages, this books gives the adult the opportunity to read to their child a short story that will reaffirm that they are loved. Tim Warness has done a wonderful job illustrating the pictures for this book. While the book is published by a Christian publishing company, the only Christian reference is to say a prayer before bedtime. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and I have written an honest review. 32 pages ISBN: 9780310754732 Publisher: Zonderkids
