God Made Hugs - Children's Book Spotlight


Your child will enjoy reading God Made Hugs (Ready, Set, Read! Beginning Readers) by Sally Anne Conan so much that it’s likely she won’t realize how much she’s learning in the process. But it’s clear that a great deal of thought went into making this book not only inspirational, but also educational. Conan’s gentle prose softly rhymes in an almost lyrical nature, drawing little readers into the story. This book has a wonderful sense of humor and timing. It engages your child’s senses, teaches sizes and animal names, and brings in characters of various ethnicity. A word list at the back of the book summarizes the fifty words used to create the story, so early readers will be able to master them as sight words. Lovely water color illustrations by Kathy Rogers compliment Sally Anne Conan’s inspirational words to make this a book that your child will ask for time and again.
