About the Book

Writing at Guided Reading Level A, beloved author-illustrator David McPhail reminds new readers about all the huggable things we encounter every day.

I hug my cat. I hug my dog. I hug my rock. There are so many things to hug, each and every day. They include pets, family members, and cherished objects, from special rocks to fluffy pillows.

With darling illustrations and a simple text listing several embrace-worthy items, celebrated author-illustrator David McPhail encourages young readers to give in to the urge to embrace the world around them.
