I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug!

Caroline B. Cooney (Author) | Tim Warnes (Illustrator)

Whether it’s a big bear, gasp for air, knock over a chair hug or a wet and drippy, slimy, slippy fish hug, children will giggle their way through all the imaginative examples. Cooney’s sweet and simple rhymes encourage playful interaction between parent and child and ultimately help them wind down before they snuggle into bed and drift off to sleep.

Ready for some raving?



Wanna see rhyme and rhythm done right? Here it is. Simple text – no more than two sentences per page – but an absolute joy to read aloud. This is going to become your go-to goodnight book… and I don’t think you’ll tire of it any time soon.


Outstanding. I am officially a fan of Tim Warnes. Each page is just so much fun! The color work is beautiful, and the artwork is wonderfully whimsical. The kid and his teddy are scrumptious.


Gorgeous color scheme and an adorably cozy cover. I love, love, love the text treatment as well. Beautiful work across the board.
