Book Review | Hug this Book

Hug this Book by Barney Saltzberg and illustrated by Fred Bengalia.  This is another of those books that grabs me immediately because it has that retro feel of books from my childhood and before.  Except that this one is a brand new publication unlike the last two books I reviewed which really were reprints of old classics.

Hug this Book combines those charming retro feel illustrations with rhyming text to grab little listener's attention.  The illustrations on each page encourage the imagination to think about all the different places we can share books together and the things, sometimes strange, we can do with them.  Definitely one to make 3-4 year olds laugh out loud, this celebration of all things bookish will be as delightful to read aloud as it will be to listen to.

Perfect bedtime reading for young and old to share together, and plenty to talk about and imagine.
