Item description for Hug by Jez Alborough...

Bobo the chimp seeks hugs among various jungle animals and their young, but he does not get what he wants until he is reunited with his own parent.

Publishers Description
"Alborough's simplicity results in another gem."
--School Library Journal
Bobo needs a hug. But his friends don't seem to understand. "Hug," he implores, time and again. Time and again his puzzled pals--from the smallest chameleon to the tallest giraffe--shrug and cuddle with their jungle mothers. As the lonely chimp's plea escalates, his friends grow concerned. Can the elephants lead Bobo to his heart's desire? Jez Alborough, the acclaimed author-illustrator of WHERE'S MY TEDDY?, IT'S THE BEAR , and MY FRIEND BEAR transforms a total of three words--and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created--into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hug?

My 22 month old loves this book  May 24, 2008
I don't know what it is about this book since the only words written in it are "Hug", "Bobo" and "Mama" but my very verbal and very avid 22 month old reader love this book. I make up the story as I think it plays out by the illustrations and she adores the book. We read it at least a dozen times at each sitting.
For mommy and baby more than daddy  Jan 19, 2008
Cute story. Spoiler: features baby and mommy more than baby and leaves out daddy. But we still like it.
GREAT book--awesome illustrations!  Dec 31, 2007
My daughter has loved this book since she was 1 yr old (now almost 3yrs old). Since there are no words, it depends on you, as the reader, to make it come alive, but that's easy since the illustrations are so vivid and carve out a very sweet story. Every child I've read this book to loves the story and it's something nearly every age can relate to--you can embellish it to engage whatever age you're reading to.
Love Hug  Dec 10, 2007
My son is 18 mos. old and loves this book. The pages are thick and easy to turn and the illustrations are adorable. My son is pre-verbal and this book is perfect for pointing and grunting. He has spent almost half an hour sitting quietly turning pages over and over. I love this book! His other favorite books are the "This is ..." city series by M Sasek.
All my kids love this book  Jul 20, 2007
I have three kids: 5,3,and1 year(s) old. They all love this book and because there isn't really much text, besides the word "hug" they can all read the story. After reading it to them it always gives us a reason to hug....and don't we all need a little reason to do that more?
