My Review:

I finally got my book and I just knew how amazing the story and illustration would be.  Who needs a Bear hug or just a hug?  We all need it and this book made me feel so soft inside, you know that fuzzy feeling of warmth.  Short sentences that you can read again and again because I know a child will want their parents to do so.  Why you ask?  Well one part in the book that made me go, ahh . . . ., "A high tide, Ocean wide, Take me for a sail hug." Now you see a boy on top of the whale giving the whale a hug.  Sweet and cute, one way to show a child how important a simple hug could mean to someone else.  Thank you FlyByPromotion.
