For fans of Guess How Much I Love You comes a story about just how much a hug can mean – to the giver and the receiver.
There are so many different types of hugs and, as an expert hug-giver, Millie knows them all. There is the Hello-l’m-happy-to-see-you hug, the I'm-Sorry hug and the Goodbye hug, to name a few. But what happens when Millie loses her hug? How can she find it? Luckily, her friends are ready to help.
This is a story about giving hugs, getting hugs and making sure the people that matter most to you know they're loved.

Recommended. I think this book would make a great read aloud, where everyone can practise their hugs and talk about the different types of hugs given and received.
a simple but very touching story about the beauty of connection… Highly recommended for little readers from around 3 years upwards.
Just So Stories
This is a lovely story about how even the happiest of people feel down sometimes and about how those around can help with extra love and attention. It is also a nice reminder to children of the importance of verbalising feelings so that others can help and a reinforcement that sad moods don’t last forever.
I’d recommend this gentle story for young readers between three and six.
