Do bugs like hugs? Of course! "Centipedes, those crawliest bugs / have 300 legs for giving out hugs. / That's 150 on one side to grasp / and 150 on the other to clasp." Hugs abound in this fanciful celebration of multi-legged animals and insects with their babies, for readers up to 6. Steven Henry's cute digital illustrations imagine the surprising coziness that clams, sea stars, ladybugs, and snakes might share with their little ones, not to mention the more expected cuddliness of birds, otters, and—of course—human moms and dads.
