I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! is a rhyming, goodnight tale for ages 4-8.  My son is three years old and has asked to read the book over and over again.  On the second reading I accidentally skipped a page and he called me on it!  He must have really been paying attention to remember every page after one reading!  :P  The illustrations are big and colorful, which really draws my child into the story.  He loves all the animals on the pages; the pig hug being his favorite.  My daughter is one and isn't super into books yet, but will sit to see the animals on the pages.  This book is definitely a keeper in our household.  I received this book free to review from FlyBy Promotions, but all opinions are my own.
