Five Book Worm Review of Love, Hugs, and Hope

Here's a link to the five book worm review of Love, Hugs, and Hope

Why I liked this book– This book is a necessity in every household. I think kids have to deal with bad things all the time. Maybe not as big as the school shootings, but a lot of other things in their lives, like being in a car accident, or a relative dying. This book can help. The story has a great feeling to it – a warm, calming, friendly – but serious – feeling. It is told in a very simple way, but I think it tells a big story. The illustrations are cartoon-like and make it easier to understand the story. The animals mixed in make it cute. I think the story will also help parents and teachers talk to kids about bad things that happen. I believe this is a book that every family will have use of in their house.

Activities and Resources- Talk. Talk about the book, about the event that happened 1 year ago, about anything that gives you and/or your child negative feelings (anger, sadness, fear, etc.).

Thanks, Eric.

Book Giveaway for Schools and Libraries

Love, Hugs, and Hope Book Giveaway. December 2013. 

Yesterday I received a partial shipment of damaged books in the mail. The few books that did arrive have partially torn covers, and some have dented spines. They cannot be sold, so I will donate these books to schools and libraries.

Anyone interested in having a signed copy of Love, Hugs, and Hope for their school or library, leave me a comment. 

This is a great reference book to help children deal with their feelings when problems arise.

This would be a great holiday donation.
