Review:
A perfect bedtime story for the nursery set is this comfort book in free-wheeling verse. It follows the activities of a loving family from sun-up to moonrise. As the title pronounces, hugs abound, enough to encircle four children, the family dog and cat and parents, too. Lewin's lighthearted water colors, each one covering a double-page spread, provide a perfect accompaniment to the action-packed Krauss' text. A charmer that's sure to be asked for again and again.
