Product Description A Hug Is for Holding Me is a sweet, cozy book about love and affection and invites children to engage with the natural world in a fresh, new way. Some hugs are tight and some hugs are snug . . . but guess who gives the BEST hugs?   Review "Feng's artwork is lovely, stylized flora and fauna filling the pages, and the love between the two is evident." ( Kirkus Reviews) "Using allusions to nature, Wheeler writes lyrically about what a hug can be . . . Detailed art by Feng has a retro feel. The ornamentlike abundance of insects, flowers, and other natural objects brushes this familial journey with magic." ( Publishers Weekly) "Vivid illustrations portray a sumptuous environment, using many shades of green. The images invite readers to consider the settings from varying perspectives, from sweeping landscapes to extreme close-ups. The juxtaposition of the family affection and scientific information is unusual and effective."
