Mack, Jeff Who Wants a Hug? PICTURE BOOK. Harper, 2015, $17.99. Content: G
Bear loves to give hugs, but that really angers Skunk. Skunk wants nothing to do with Bear or his hugs and tries desperately to sabotage him. After all the mean things Skunk does to Bear, he still continues to offer him hugs. This is a great story to help young ones deal with a bully or even someone who is just different from them. My six year old loves the funny things Skunk tries to do to Bear and understands that the story is trying to tell her to love people regardless of how they treat you.
