I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug! - #BearHugs #FlyBy Children's Book Review and Giveaway

Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255:  “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”):  Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway.  Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.  I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

About the Book:

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.

I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug is a sweet loving bedtime story book that is also sure to become a Valentine’s Day favorite for little ones who enjoy celebrating a day full of hugs and kisses from loved ones. I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug is available in hardcover for $16.99 in retail stores nationwide and online.

My Review:

Every day, up until my mother passed away last year, she would give me a hug and a kiss on the cheek before I went to bed or if I left the house.  I passed that gesture on to my kids and do it now, even with them being teenagers.  I'm not much of a hugger, but make sure my kids are given one each and every day.  It's a gesture of my love, and a reminder of a memory made with my mother.

With that said, I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! is a children's book that brings sweet sentiments about hugs.  The illustrations are adorable, with some showcasing what kind of hugs a fish, horse, sheep, bear, and other animals might give.  The story is told in rhythmic form, and is very catchy.  It doesn't take long to read but I can see it being a popular reading choice among children.  This book is at the top of the list for one of my favorites for younger kids.
Win It!

One person will win a hardcover book copy of I'm Going To Give You a Bear Hug!
