One Sweet Book
book recommendation, last week, that I decided to do it yet again. Today, I'd like to recommend you read, "Hugs and Kisses" written by Christophe Loupy and illustrated by Eva Tharlet. This little book is such a sweet story about a puppy named, Hugs, who goes out searching for the farm animal that can give the best kiss. Hugs does get a lot of sweet kisses from his barnyard friends, but he soon finds out that the best kiss of all, comes right from his mom.
This story is really simple, sweet and fun. Christophe did a great job creating repetition in the story. He used some creative words to describe each kiss that Hugs received on his farm. These words can help your kids imagine what it would feel like to receive a kiss from each farm animal very well. I can also appreciate the gorgeous illustrations that Eva created in this book. I love how she blended colors in the background, so that the focus was on the sweetness of each animal. Just like last week's recommendation, this book has been made for ages 3 and up to enjoy. If you haven't read this book, you should. Go pick it up at your library, and read it with your kids. They'll love it!
