Told in joyful rhymes and bright illustrations, One Hug celebrates the many ways we embrace our loved ones.

As a family wakes up to begin preparing for the arrival of their immigrant relatives, the littlest girl begins to feel left out and nervous. But an encouraging brother and the welcoming arms of her grandma help end the day with a belly full of food, jars full of fireflies, and all in cozy, snuggly slumber.

From the dazzling talents of debut author Katrina Moore and illustrator Julia Woolf comes a fun, cuddly story that reminds readers how one simple hug can go a long, happy way. A perfect read-aloud to share in classrooms or at bedtime!

Soft and strong, warm and snug,
What’s your favorite way to hug?
Mom will SQUEEZE you like a bear;
Dad will WHOOSH you through the air!

Praise For One Hug

"Readers would need hearts of stone not to moved by the family togetherness on display. The loosely cartoony illustrations are filled with charming details... The book amply demonstrates that 'hugging makes us family.'"
