One little panda bear searches for the perfect hug. There are a lot of hugs in the world. Will he find the one he's looking for?
What I thought: This book clinches it. Next Valentine's Day, I'm doing a Hugs storytime and pairing The Perfect Hug with Hugless Douglas by David Melling. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and appealing. I know kids will enjoy identifying all the animals. My favorite illustration is the monkeys.
Storytime Themes: Hugs, Valentine's Day, Animals
