The emotions of little bobo are so enchanting and this book is a MUST for any little one. What is unique about this book, is that there a This is an adorable story, that the children will love and empathise with.

Having pictures and very “Hug” is a very sweet story about a lonely monkey walking in the wild. What’s great about this book is that because of the limited use of words, a parent can embellish and vary the story each time it’s read. Everything I could say about these things would be accurate and would make this book a great choice for your personal collection at home.

I hate this book.

But to find her, he must ask all of the other animals who are with their mom’s already. We read it at least a dozen times at each sitting.

My daughter has loved this book since she was 1 yr old now almost 3yrs old. When my husband and I first “read” this book it brought tears to our eyes. Just goes to show that all a kid really needs is a hug from someone they love, in this case Mommy.

By having the chimp ask a multitude of animals for a hug, Alborough draws a parallel to the human inhibition to seek affection. This Hug book really blew though. A must for the very young. As a matter of fact she loves all the Jez Alborough books with little Bobo in them!

The illustrations in the book are wonderful and keep my daughter’s attention without fail. Bobo’s quest for a hug is truly heartbreaking at times, yet the final hug is the epitome of happiness and comfort.

The animals have such great faces and the story tugs on your heart. He gets sad along with Bobo in the middle of the book, and he gets so so happy at the end of the book and both the mommies get their hugs.

One of my favorite almost wordless picture books features a lost monkey who huv his mama with the help of an elephant friend. I don’t blame him. Every 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 the sweetest, best book and I just love it. I make up the story as I think it plays out by the illustrations and she adores the book. Gina Pell, San Francisco I have three kids:
