There are many different ways to show affection. One of the ways that many of us show each other how much we love one other is by hugging. In this charming board book, Lorie Ann Grover's rhyming text combines with Rebecca Malone's illustrations to show little children how animals share hugs.

We see elephants hug with their "noses," and giraffes hug with their necks. Some animals hug in the snow, and other hug in the ocean "deep." Hugs are wonderfully universal.
