I Need a Hug by Aaron Blabey for ages 2-5

“I need a hug. Will you cuddle me, Lou?” Says the porcupine to the rabbit.

“What with those spikes? Get away from me! Shoo!”

The little porcupine asks assorted animals for a cuddle. When the animals who rejected him come running back towards him, they are followed by a snake looking for a kiss. Funny!

Story Mama Quick Review:

Another fun story from Aaron Blabey. Lots of shouting for kids to join in on. This is a fun read aloud. We like the message that everyone needs a hug sometimes! Note this is slightly shorter than the usual 32 pages.
