I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I'll Hug You More by Laura Duksta

I'll hug you as we swing together in the old oak tree
I'll hug you on a stormy night and keep you safe with me
Hugs can say a lot of things like "hello," "thank you," and "I'm sorry." But underneath it all, every hug says "I love you." Share I'll Hug You More with someone you care about and remind them that every hug is a special message of love!
This book is adorable! It's reversible, so it's really two books in one. Read one way it is the parent talking to the child, saying, "I love you," and sharing hugs all throughout the day. When read the other direction, it's the child talking to the parent, again saying, "I love you," and giving many hugs. The pages are filled with illustrations of animal parent-child pairs hugging while they do everyday activities: reading together, taking a bath, coming home from school, etc.
Perfect for children ages 3-5, this book would make the perfect read aloud for bedtime or any time really. It's so sweet and so true. I know as I parent I can't get enough of hugging my son.
