Our littlest one found the joy in this book weeks ago, and it has been a favorite since then. We play "hug" chase games, recite parts of the book--"Bobo!", and laugh and giggle about hugs.
We happen to have a little monkey that is perfect for hugging and Benjamin loves carrying it around. When he is sad, a hug from his little monkey will make him laugh. He loves this monkey and I am thankful he has learned to love reading as well!
