This book is about a baby monkey running around the jungle trying to find someone to give him a hug. And of course we are treated to a touching reunion with Mom.

I hate this book. I highly recommend it. Jfz child I’ve read this book to loves the story and it’s something nearly every age can relate to – you can embellish it to engage whatever age you’re reading to. This is an adorable story, that the children will love and empathise with.


Hug by Jez Alborough

I found this to be a boring and uneventful book My son, who loves books, squirms away when I try to read this book to him. This wordless book is great for kids to start their imagination running. Simple but lovely book for the wee ones. Dec 31, Catlyn Caldart rated it did not like it. Just try to resist Jez Alborough’s latest charmer!

But that doesn’t mean that it is less than any other picture book. Book Review 9 – Hug — Jez Alborough This story is one, which I believe relates to all humans, as all of us during a certain point in our lives will have wanted a hug from our mothers.

Quite the contrary, the incredibly expressive characters, especially our main character, Bobo, are illustrated with complete heart and soul. The book can bring up many themes and discussions if read out aloud in circle time. Hug is alboroug only a story of getting lost; it is also a story of the human need to express love and the equality for compassion we all carry.

Just goes to show that all a kid really needs is a hug from someone they love, in this case Mommy. We have the board version of this book and it ablorough and looks beautiful. Few childrens’ books are as alborlugh and entertaining as this one.

I can’t help thinking that this masterful and enchanting book has actually helped our daughter to develop her emotional awareness, while having fun at the same time.

Rachel, Utah Few childrens’ books are as tender and entertaining as this one. She still loves it to this day!
