The Book

This simple rhyming board book is cuteness overload.  It expresses happiness and acceptance.  Snuggle up together and share the love that is so beautifully expressed on every page. This book is a sequel to the successful, "I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug." 

The book is full of imaginative ways to give and receive hugs.  A thread of kindness and joy shows up in each scenario stitching the theme together perfectly.   

It is a wonderful wintry bedtime tale ( or any season really ) to cozy up and read together.  The illustrations are extremely well done.  They are vibrant, cheerful, action-packed and very kid-friendly.   "I'm Going to Give You a Polar Bear Hug!" will encourage you to become a well-oiled hugging-machine.  Wrap your heart and arms around this fantastic book ! I highly recommend it. 

Storywraps Rating - 5 +++ HUGS! 

Meet the Author

Caroline Cooney knew in sixth grade that she wanted to be a writer when "the best teacher I ever had in my life" made writing her main focus. "He used to rip off covers from The New Yorker and pass them around and make us write a short story on whichever cover we got. I started writing then and never stopped!"
When her children were young, Caroline started writing books for young people -- with remarkable results. She began to sell stories to Seventeen magazine and soon after began writing books. Suspense novels are her favorites to read and write. "In a suspense novel, you can count on action."
To keep her stories realistic, Caroline visits many schools outside of her area, learning more about teenagers all the time. She often organizes what she calls a "plotting game," in which students work together to create plots for stories. Caroline lives in Westbrook, Connecticut and when she's not writing she volunteers at a hospital, plays piano for the school musicals and daydreams!
