Our baby has enjoyed "Daddy Hugs" since he was five months old, and Mommy wanted equal time, so we bought "Mommy Hugs" for Christmas -- another hit! The baby loves the Karen Katz books. He listens intently as we read them, looking at the colorful illustrations. This book holds his rapt attention until we reach 9 hugs, at which point he knows bedtime is coming and gets antsy! This is a fantastic book and I highly recommend it.
We love reading this book together, but I have to say out of the Karen Katz books "Counting Kisses" is our favorite. I read it to my daughter who is now 2yrs old and we have been reading it for months every night before bed. Every page is a mom, dad, sister, or grandma, mostly mom kissing her little girl. They start from 10 and work their way to 1 last kiss. My daughter picks her foot up for me to kiss when they do it in the book and loves for me to kiss her belly when the grandma does that in the book. Its just a great book, this one is good too. I hug her and squeeze her while I read it to her.
This is a lovely book for baby. It's bigger in size than most of the other baby board books I own but it's not too big so that my 7 month old can still hold it on her own and chew on the corners. The prose is rhythmic and it introduces babies at a young age to numbers and counting. Babies love being read the same book over and over and there are enough pages in this book that you as the adult reading it won't get bored. It introduces you to the baby on the first page, then on each addtional page, it counts down from 10 to one, then ends on the last page. So there are at least 12 pages of story line to flip through. The illustrations are beautiful and my baby loves looking at all the colorful pictures. Well done. I hightly recommend this book and the other books by the same author "Counting Kisses" and "Daddy Hugs".
Does not rhyme or flow like other books from this author. I don't like the last page where it shows the mother putting the baby to bed and leaving the room whereas the Daddy Hugs book the last page is of the Daddy snuggling and sleeping with the baby. The pictures although cute blend together so much that a young baby doesn't "see" the pictures. They are all of a print rather than solid colors and I think this is what does not work so well for young babies.
Who doesn't like hugs from mommy? Hugs from any loved one, even.The author, Karen Katz, has written a book about love. Certainly about hugs, but that means love. A baby when it wakes up is usually greeted with a hug and some kisses, or many kisses , many hugs. And, on through the day, hugs and kisses are given by mommy, in this case. Hugs are one of the most enjoyable forms of life, and baby knows when he us hugged by his mommy that lee shines through. During the day, you can count the hugs, and mommy hugs are particularly beautiful and meaningful. A child who is hugged will always remember the love that shines through. Have you been hugged by your mommy recently?Parents/teachers will enjoy reading the book to their children. Children will enjoy the soothing lying tone of voice test comes through when reading this book. The illustrations are lovely, vivid and colorful, and depict the day if hugs from mommy.Highly Recommended. prisrob 07-25-15
AWESOME! I love interacting with my child through books. Karen Katz is a fantastic writer. We love her books!
This (along with Daddy Hugs) is one of our son's favorite books. He loves to snuggle up and read it and mimic the hugs described in the book. The book itself is great quality. The illustrations are very well done.
This book is not a family favorite, but is a nice book. The text is very short on all pages. Additionally, there are 4 blank pages, the fist two and last two have only a graphic pattern. This does not even count the publisher information page so its ends up being almost as many pages with words/pictures as filler pagers. It is very, very similar to "Daddy Hugs" so would not recommend buying both. Not a bad book, but not much that stands out when there are so many outstanding board books to choose from.
