Praise for One Hug:

The excitement is catching, and readers would need hearts of stone not to moved by the family togetherness on display. By the end, readers will be searching out hugs of their own. The book amply demonstrates that ‘hugging makes us family.


Kirkus Reviews

The simple rhyming text describes the many ways loved ones may hug. Although the text focuses on different kinds of hugs, the overall story manages to dig deeper into the many facets of love, affection, and what makes a family. An enjoyable read-aloud to be shared one-on-one or in a small group setting. Recommended.
