This is an adorable book for the very young: It is so sweet, perfect for babies, but is precious for those of us who are still children at heart, remembering the importance of our mother’s love since babyhood. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The only word consistently is “Hug. We use cookies to give you the best possible experience. That’s how Bobo, the huv chimp in this book, feels. I highly, highly recommend this book for the learning opportunities, imagination opportunities, and best of all The book is from early years to key stage one but as mentioned earlier it definitely is a book for everyone to read at least once in his or her lifetime.


Hug : Jez Alborough :

Throughout the story the monkey is walking around and observing other animals. My 3 zlborough old needs more words than that and I am usually too tired to have to make them up. The pictures in this book are extremely alborougn because there aren’t very many words in the book. By having the chimp ask a multitude of animals for a hug, Alborough draws a parallel to the human inhibition to seek affection. The chimp asks for such affection to be reciprocated onto him, but when no one does so he becomes distraught.

It is truly a wonderful book about love, affection, and the bond between parent and child. A fun exploration of feelings with few words as the reader journeys through the jungle. But poor Bobo is alone. C Gruver I don’t know what it is about this book since the only words written in it are “Hug”, “Bobo” and “Mama” but my very verbal and very avid 22 month old reader love this book.

Just try to resist Jez Alborough’s latest charmer! One of my favorite almost wordless picture books features a lost monkey who finds his mama with the help of an elephant friend.

This simple one-word picture book invites preschoolers to read ALONE and takes them on a baby monkey’s adventure to find his own mother’s ‘hug. So does our girl I suspect she thinks the corners are very tasty.


I would recommend it highly. I thought this was a very cute and easy read. Just goes to show that all jdz kid really needs is a hug aborough someone they love, in this case Mommy. A Zimmerman “anitazim”, Missouri My daughter has loved this book since she was 1 yr old now almost 3yrs old. And where is his mother? This book is utterly adorable. Bobo’s quest for a hug is truly heartbreaking at times, yet the final hug is the epitome of happiness and comfort.

All the monkey said was “hug” he showed he wanted attention and wanted his mommy.

I purchased as a gift for a baby shower for my daughter who is expecting her first child. Want to Read saving….

Seeing it again I decided to buy it for my 15 month old daughter who now delights in shouting out Bobo the main character whenever the book is seen. I hate this book.
