I hate this book. Poor Bobo wants a hug but no one will give him one. And where is his mother? Did he run off? Stupid book. View 2 comments. Sep 01, Zara rated it it was amazing. This is an adorable story, that the children will love and empathise with. He wonders around the jungle trying to get hugs from all kinds of jungle animals and notices that every animal he asks already have someone to hug, but unfortunately for Bobo no hugs for him.

As the build-up has led you to believe, he eventually finds him Mummy and gets his long awaited hug. What is unique about this book, is that there a This is an adorable story, that the children will love and empathise with.

What is unique about this book, is that there are only three words used in the whole story - 'hug' being the main one, 'Mummy' and 'Bobo'. Even so the momentum of the book, combined with the lavish illustrations, still manage to tell a wonderful tale. It is a good book to help early readers and promoting understanding of the shapes of the letters to form the three words.

Repeat reading will, hopefully, instil recognition. I think this is suitable for 0 - 5yrs as it offers a diverse wealth of topic matters that you can strategically use it to keep children interested.

It is an exquisite, charming and delightful little book and would heartily recommend. Sep 30, Rhayne rated it it was amazing. Hug is not only a story of getting lost; it is also a story of the human need to express love and the equality for compassion we all carry. The ability to express affection overshadows our cognitive list of differences. Through whimsical depiction Alborough expresses this need so effectively, readers of all ages can engage in the experience.

Hug tells the story of a young chimpanzee who is wandering the jungle alone. On his journey he encounters multiples of all types of animals, all of which are embracing. The chimp asks for such affection to be reciprocated onto him, but when no one does so he becomes distraught. An elephant comes to his aid and helps guide the young chimpanzee through his adventure; which ultimately ends with unification of the jungle.

By having the chimp ask a multitude of animals for a hug, Alborough draws a parallel to the human inhibition to seek affection.

Through this physical process of asking for love, the chimp actually expresses a need for acceptance, in that people often seek acceptance through the love of others. Also by having other species join in care for the chimp, Alborough brushes over themes of equality in that cultural, physical and ethnic background do not define our ability to accept differences.

Love is a universal experience which transcends differences, not a selective expression dictated by similarities Mar 17, Cheriee Weichel rated it it was amazing Shelves: ada-everett. This book is just brilliant. So much is conveyed in just one word. Of course when I read it with Ada and Everett, we spend a lot of time talking about what is going on.

Bobo, a young chimp, is walking through the jungle when he comes upon other animals hugging a parent. When Bobo seems downcast, the mother elephant takes Bobo on a search for it's mother.

On the way we see other young creatures with a parent. It was interesting reading other readers comments about what is going on in this book. At no time have I ever thought that Bobo wanted affection from these other animals. I just thought that seeing them made him miss his own mother.

Simple but lovely book for the wee ones. My daughter loved it, and wanted re-reads. Feb 20, Brissa rated it it was amazing. Throughout the story the monkey is walking around and observing other animals. All the other animals had one thing in common, they had company and the monkey was all alone.

All the monkey said was "hug" he showed he wanted attention and wanted his mommy. The rest of the animals begin to take notice of him and decide to help him. This wordless book is great for kids to start their imagination running. Having pictures and very "Hug" is a very sweet story about a lonely monkey walking in the wild.

Having pictures and very little to no words, will have children creating stories on their own while flipping the pages. I could see the animals moving through the pictures. The way he puts his little head down when he sees everyone else is accompanied expect for him. While the rest of the animals are flat characters they are still critical for the story line because they help him.

I believe this book is great for young children who may be reluctant readers or are still learning to read. This book can essentially be for anyone that wants to get a good read.

The illustrations of this book are bold and effective. They keep the reader engaged and compliment the story very well as well as the repetitive nature of the book. The book is from early years to key stage one but as mentioned earlier it definitely is a book for everyone to read at least once in his or her lifetime.

The book can bring up many themes and discussions if read out aloud in circle time.
