About the Book
From the New York Times bestselling author of I Love You More comes a new picture book about the love between a parent and child. I’ll Hug You More by Laura Duksta is a touching ode to the power of hugs. Hugs can say many different things, like “hello,” “thank you,” and “I’m sorry.” But underneath it all, every hug says “I love you.” I’ll Hug You More explores the depths of the special bond of familial love through the universal gesture of a hug.
This cleverly conceived flip story ends in the middle and starts from either side, showing you what love looks like from both a child’s and a parent’s perspective.
Told in simple, sweet rhyme and featuring a vibrant collection of beautifully illustrated baby animals and their parents, I’ll Hug You More will be treasured by anyone who has experienced the loving, universal gesture of a hug.

My Take on the Book
This was a very cute book that you can read in two different ways. When you read it one way you get a parent saying, “I love you,” and sharing hugs all day. In the other direction it is the child talking to the parent saying and doing the same. The message is a powerful one and you get a ton of great images that show parent and child in a great relationship together and also engaging in so many fun activities that bring them closer together in the end.
This is a great book for kids around the ages of 3-5. This is a book that can easily be read to your child at any time and is a book you will come back to again and again!
