Close Family! One Hug by Katrina Moore

ONE HUG,TWO HUGS,

SOMETIMES THREE.

HUGGING MAKES US FAMILY.

There are lots of hugs out there, and all are different.

A puppy hugs nuzzle to nose or with a lick to the toes.

Some hugs from Dad are a swooshy toss, up high.

Some hugs make people smile; some make them cry.

Some hugs are sweet like Grandma's iced tea.

And some hugs are cozy and different, like sleeping with the cousins all in a tent!

There are all kinds of hugs, you see...
ONE HUG TURNS A "ME" TO "WE."

Katrina Moore's One Hug (Katherine Tegen/HarperCollins, 2019) shows all the ways of family hugs, from Mom and Dad, from pets, from grandmoms, and from visiting cousins. Cute cartoons by illustrator Julia Woolf portrays all sorts of hugs--cuddly, swooshy, whiskery, tickly, and wiggly--from everyone in the family, in this sweet and charming rhyming story that introduces youngsters to hugs from all kinds of family members, explaining that they are something we get and give, all encompassing affection from those who love each other. Says School Library Journal, "... the overall story manages to dig deeper into the many facets of love, affection, and what makes a family."
