Being Yourself,  Kindness

I Need a Hug

by Aaron Blabey

This is a super short, sweet, and simple book. What I have to say just happens to mirror that- super short, sweet and simple. The animals are TOTALLY CUTE. Especially Hedgehog. Just look at him. Just a hug, that’s all he needs, simple. A hug. But only one animal is willing. That’s okay though, it only takes one. It turns out, they are perfect for each other. It’s written in a quick rhyme that works perfectly. It reminds me of Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back and Jen Betton’s Hedgehog Needs a Hug. Just perfect.
