3.0 out of 5 stars Cute art, but a questionable message 25 April 2017
By Pamela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I like the artwork in this book a lot. It's quirky and cute and appealing to kids.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like the story. 24 April 2017
By Rhiana Jones, Blogger at Rhiana Reports - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I found this book a little odd. The art was cute and relateable to kids. However, I didn't like the story. It's a story of the little bear going through the forest learning how nice it is to give all of the animals hugs. However, the other animals in the story don't appear to want to be hugged! And the little bear and his dad insist on giving them all hugs anyway. Left a poor taste in my mouth, as it encourages kids to go around insisting on touching and hugging people that don't want it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Light on Story, But Good Illustrations 30 April 2017
By M. JEFFREY MCMAHON - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Five stars for illustrations. My twin 7-year-olds love it. So do I. Regarding the "plot," I found it lacking even for a reader for first graders. A daddy bear and his son go around hugging various animals who are scared at first but appear relieved they're not being eaten for dinner. The plot doesn't offer much of a moral lesson, humor, or story. I would have given the book 3 stars for lack of narrative, but since my twins love the book, and they count more than I do, I'm giving the book 4 stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars What a cute little story about the benefits of hugs! 13 April 2017
By Daba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Perfect little story for anyone! The illustrations are adorable and the story keeps even the youngest interested! I love seeing how careful Little Near is to make sure everyone gets a hug! He's also careful with the little animals of the forest to make sure he shares his joy and warmth of a hug.

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.
3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda blah and odd story 4 May 2017
By Brian W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Pretty visuals but I agree with the others that the story is a bit weird and kinda blah/dragged on. I liked that it was a daddy/son story but it comes across a little creepy having the dad bear excited to spend the day hugging random animals and even a hunter. Since my toddler soaks up literally everything we say and do right now I'm not cool with teaching her to hug everyone she sees just because.
