X0X0X0! Big Hugs and Little Hugs by Felicia Bond
EVERYONE HUGS ALL OVER THE WORLD!
Doting parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts--hardly anyone needs an excuse for giving a cute little one a hug, but just in case they need an occasion to honor the opportunity Valentine's Day offers, notable picture book artist Felicia Bond (illustrator of all of Laura Numeroff's best-selling If You Give A series), has a brand-new title, Big Hugs Little Hugs (Philomel, 2012).
Cheery rhyming text and Bond's familiar art style will please fans of Numeroff's popular books, and no one will be able to resist giving or returning their own Big Hugs Little Hugs after enjoying the process with penguins and pandas, lions and dinos, and other critters. Ants and turtles may not actually hug, but most of us mammals do, in our own way, and we humans enjoy it all our lives, and, as Bond says, all over the world.
