A Hug is for Holding Me by Lisa Wheeler is a sweet, cosy book aimed at 3-5 year olds. This simple story is about love and affection and is a sweet way to look at nature and our surroundings.
In A Hug is for Holding Me, a little girl and her father go for a walk and spot all kinds of things which are like a hug; a speckled bird egg, a cocoon, a flower bud and a sea shell. They each hold something tight inside them and keep them safe, just like Dad! But who gives the best hugs in the world?
It is very soothingly written, with some rhythm to the text and teamed with the illustrations, A Hug is for Holding Me makes for a lovely bedtime book to share with a pre-schooler.
