We have this old book someone from Nebraska gave us. It has only one word: HUG. A little monkey is wandering around the jungle and sees all his monkey friends hugging their parents. He realizes his mommy is missing and he doesn't have a hug. His friends help him find his mommy and his hug, then there's a giant hug fest at the end. The kids love it and I'm not sure why. Perhaps they like their mommy's hugs? Their mommy definitely likes hugs - I like to squeeze my kids.
Terry was reading it to the littles last week and Ezra started doing this to the book. He's hugging it!
And of course Samuel had to do it too. I just thought it was cute. Need to remember these sweet little things.
