A Hug Is for Holding Me is a sweet, cozy book about love and affection and invites children to engage with the natural world in a fresh, new way. Some hugs are tight and some hugs are snug . . . but guess who gives the BEST hugs?
This book has re-readablility because it is a visual depiction of how parents feel toward their children. We want to hug them over and over and show them how the world hugs them back.
Award-winning children’s author, Lisa Wheeler has worked many jobs, most of them involving bad smells. “I’ve washed diapers—both baby and adult—, scrubbed toilets, and even spent a few months as the best night-crawler wrangler on a small island.” But her favorite job, hands-down, is writing. “Fresh books are one of my favorite smells—bonus!”
Lisa is passionate about children’s books. “I love everything about them!” She’s written over 40 picture books in prose and rhyme, an easy reader series, four books of poems, and creative nonfiction for the very young. “As far back as I can remember, I’ve been a rhymer. Wordplay excites me!” Lisa’s newest books are Dino-Christmas, People Don’t Bite People, Babies Can Sleep Anywhere and The Christmas Boot . Lisa writes her books in southeast Michigan
