Scholastic Monday ~ I Need a Hug

Do you like hugs? I can vouch for the fact that a good hug definitely makes a tough day a little bit better…or a lot better! We have some wonderful “huggers” in our home and I’m not giving them up! 😉 Buuuuut…what if you need a hug, but you’re just a wee bit prickly…spikey….or pokey?

Well, it turns out that this was little porcupine’s problem in Aaron Blabey’s book: I Need a Hug. She really wanted a hug…a cuddle…a snuggle, but no one wanted to hug her with all those prickly spikes!

I Need a Hug by Aaron Blabey is an adorable little story for little people about porcupine’s wish for a hug. It’s cute, it’s sweet, it’s simple, it’s humorous and I can guarantee that kids will love this story! What do you think….will anyone give little porcupine the hug that she so desires?? Will anyone be able to get past the prickles and give porcupine a snuggle? This is a great book with a simple story line that also has some great meaning behind it. It’s a great one to add to your bookshelves this winter!
