Read an Excerpt

* *   Reviewed by Hilary Williamson

Hip, Hug, Hooray! is all about hugs ... 'Hugging gives my arms something REALLY NICE to do. I like hugs, don't you?' It then goes into all kinds of hugs - fast and slow, high and low, 'twisty-turning', 'whirl, swirl, twirl-around', 'sad hugs and glad hugs and even bad and MAD hugs!' It would make an excellent bed-time read, giving reassurance, comfort and an excuse for extra hugs when little ones need them most.

There is a strong Christian theme to both the illustrations and in the closing pages - 'God HUGS ME ... EVERY DAY ... in EVERY WAY. Hip, Hug, Hooray!' - and the cheerful drawings will make you want to reach out and hug someone, which is a great idea anyway. Read this book to a small child, and share the hugs on every page together.
