Bear Hug Giveaway

Yesterday I received I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug in the mail. Immediately my 5-year-old son
exclaimed, "Is that for me?!" And he insisted we read it together. He loved it. When the book was finished he hugged me like a bear. It was adorable. Later that day, my 6-year-old was looking for a book to read and grabbed this book as well. He was able to read almost the whole thing. "Feathered" gave him a little difficulty. But he was excited to be able to read a whole book and I think he even noticed the rhythm of the rhyme. AND HE ALSO FELT THE NEED TO GIVE ME BIG HUGS! It was so cute.

It's a good book. The pictures are nice and, for a delightful change, the rhymes actually are beautifully executed. It's very creative and the kids love it. You can win a copy by entering the rafflecopter and checking back here on Sunday.
