I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! by Caroline B. Cooney

Caroline B. Cooney
ISBN: 9780310754732
Publisher's Synopsis:
I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug!, written by bestselling author Caroline B. Cooney, is a playful and comforting bedtime book that imagines all the wonderful ways a child might give and receive a hug.
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.
MrsK's Review:
Did you know that there are more than "bear hugs?" In this delightful read aloud, there are many types of hugs. There are hugs to help you "sleep like a log." Hugs that shout... "Yes, oh yes, of course!"  Plus there is the discovery of a duck, pig, fish, or whale hug which are quite endearing. And yet, nothing can compare to a "Way beyond compare hug." 

When a story is woven with perfected illustrations, every reader and listener experiences joy so beautifully crafted that every night it becomes a favorite choice. With pure delight, you and your little one can have precious moments comparing hugs.

As I shared this book with my little ones, our giggles became fun-filled huggles!
Enjoy this engaging story over and over,
MrsK

Meet the Author:
Caroline B. Cooney
Caroline Cooney knew in sixth grade that she wanted to be a writer when "the best teacher I ever had in my life" made writing her main focus. "He used to rip off covers from The New Yorker and pass them around and make us write a short story on whichever cover we got. I started writing then and never stopped!"

When her children were young, Caroline started writing books for young people -- with remarkable results. She began to sell stories to Seventeen magazine and soon after began writing books. Suspense novels are her favorites to read and write. "In a suspense novel, you can count on action."

To keep her stories realistic, Caroline visits many schools outside of her area, learning more about teenagers all the time. She often organizes what she calls a "plotting game," in which students work together to create plots for stories. Caroline lives in Westbrook, Connecticut and when she's not writing she volunteers at a hospital, plays piano for the school musicals and daydreams!


Meet the Illustrator:
Tim Warnes (Papa Bear) has his home in the countryside of Dorset, England, with his wife, illustrator Jane Chapman (Mama Bear), and their son, Noah (Little Bear). When asked how he felt about illustrating this book, Tim says, "My Christian faith is central to my life, so I jumped at the challenge to illustrate Jesus Loves Me! -- what a great way to use the gift God gave me!" Tim has drawn closely on his own experiences to give us a pictorial celebration of family life, and to share God's love for all of us. The hens you see in the pictures are from Tim's very own backyard.
With over forty picture books currently in print, award-winning illustrator Tim Warnes has been published in more than twenty countries. This is his first book with Simon & Schuster.
