Time for a Hug

by Phillis Gershator, Mim Green, David Walker
A hug feels good. 
Lets hug again.
Well hug at nine.
Well hug at ten.

When is it time for a hug? Anytime! This feel-good story—now in the popular board book format—assures kids theres plenty of love to go around-the-clock.

From the moment Little Bunny wakes up in the morning until the moon comes out and the stars shine, every hour includes a warm hug from Big Bunny. Whether they bake or build, bike or hike, a caring hug always feels just right. This is a book that is generous with love, and full of the sweetest illustrations youve ever seen.
"[A] sweet, brief rhyming tale celebrating hugs at any hour of the day . . . . The pleasingly predictable rhyme will have preschoolers chiming in all the way to the page where the covers are pulled up. Worth a pause and may well inspire a hug or two." — Kirkus Reviews
