How Do You Hug A Porcupine? by Laurie Isop

Simple, cute, and funny. A young boy watches as other kids hug all sorts of animals: pigs, horses, cats, dogs, etc. BUT is left to wonder, "How do you hug a porcupine?"

"Can you hug some billy goats? Entice them with a bag of oats!
And surely you can hug a pig; just spread your arms out EXTRA big."

As each animal is hugged, readers will be left to wonder just how this boy will tackle the prickly job of hugging a porcupine. With a surprise ending, which will leave readers chuckling, this cute book is soon to be a read aloud favorite - as it has become at our house!
