How Many Hugs?

Written by Heather Swain and illustrated by Steven Henry

Published by Feiwel & Friends


Publisher's Summary

A charming board book that explores all the ways that animals and multi-legged insects give hugs, How Many Hugs? is perfect as a counting picture book and for reading aloud at bedtime! Centipedes, those crawliest bugs have 300 legs for giving out hugs. That's 150 on one side to grasp and 150 on the other to clasp. Hugs abound in this celebration of multi-legged animals and insects and their babies! And at the end of the day, human parents can give their little ones as many hugs as they want—with two arms. Charming art and rhyming text make this a perfect companion to All Kinds of Kisses, also by Heather Swain.
