Whew I almost missed it... Today is National Hug Day! I like the idea of hugging....it is warm and friendly and does make me feel better....especially if it comes from someone I love.
Hugs From Pearl written and illustrated by Paul Schmid is a wonderfully sweet new book that is sure to become a family favorite. I love little Pearl because even though her hugs are "ouchy" everyone still loves to get them. I love her sweet face....Mr Schmid really captures the innocence of childhood in her expressions. This is a beautiful read aloud that I would have loved to read at story time. Perfect for a one on one read aloud or for a group....either way a lovely book to share with a child.
