I would give this book one out of five stars because even though it is meant for beginning readers it doesn’t use many words. I liked that it was a board book and could be used by younger students without getting ruined. Use to talk about emotions and caring for others. One of my favorite almost wordless picture books features a lost monkey who finds his mama with the help of an elephant friend.

It is a good book to help early readers and promoting understanding of the shapes of the letters to form the three words. We all want a hug. I thought this was a very cute and easy read. We thought we were just being overly emotional in those first few sleep-deprived days after coming home from the hospital with our newborn daughter – but nearly one year later, it still has the same effect!


Hug : Jez Alborough :

Sure to be a classic. The illustrations beautifully portray the expressions xlborough the animals and the single word used in different tones conveys everything she needs to understand this story.

I struggle with any book that hasn’t got a verbal story and though I understand its intended to promote discussing it with the child it’s just not something I enjoy and perhaps that rubbed off as Callum didn’t like it either. I recommend it to parents of toddlers, up to age 3. The book uses just three words hug, Bobo, and Mommyand this minimalist approach serves to highlight Alborough’s rich artwork.

So many board books are far too advanced with too many words for our youngest children, but this one is absolutely perfect. I found this to be a boring and uneventful book My son, who loves books, squirms away when I try to read this book to him. Preschoolers or Kindergartners can fill in the story in this book with one word.

The fact that readers have the ability to personalize the tale with their own ad-libbing makes the story perfect for my little one, who never fails to feel concern for Bobo’s plight, and tremendous reassurance in the knowledge that the missing Mommy always comes back to her beloved baby.

The lack of words takes me out of the driver’s seat, and leaves my month-old daughter to jabber away with her own version of what’s going on.


Jun 02, Sara Rad rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jul 11, Veronica Kapinos rated it really jwz it. My 3 year old needs more words than that and I am usually too tired to have to make them up. The illustrations are clear, and engaging – you and your child can’t help but empathize with all of the wonderfully drawn expressions. I would recommend it highly.

I was overwhelmed by the response to Hug – a selection of the 58 five star reviews on Amazon reviews follows. We’re read it so many times that he actually reads the pages now as soon as I turn them.

Using only the single word “hug” throughout the book, this simple, endearing story is told through Jez Alborough’s gorgeous, alborojgh artwork. Mar 20, Hassan Ali rated it really liked it.
