The story? It's... okay. It's about a little bear and his dad going around the forest, hugging all of the creatures. Unfortunately, some of the creatures have to be talked into being hugged, and that makes me uncomfortable. If someone doesn't want a hug, they should be under no obligation to give one just because the hugger wants to give them one (in the book and in real life). Not that every children's book needs to have a lesson, but the lesson in this one seem to be "be persistent and people will cave and let you have access to their bodies." That's not a lesson that I want my daughter to internalize, frankly.
It's a cute book, but I just can't get comfortable with the message in it.
It's the perfect size for story time with the little ones and makes everyone feel special at the end. You can't go wrong with this touching little story.
