Same Love, Different Hug
Author: Sarah Hovorka
Illustrator: Abbey Bryant
A sensitive and honest picture book that celebrates the different ways in which we can show each other affection.
We like hugs big or small,
squeeze-me-tight or feathery light.
Bear hugs, morning hugs, jump hugs, too.
Quiet, loud; they all feel right.
But . . .
What do others like?
Some people love a big, strong hug. Others like a gentle hug. Some don’t like to hug at all—they like to shake hands instead. Same Love, Different Hug is a gentle picture book that looks at how different people connect and navigate boundaries, modeling social-emotional skills for the youngest among us.
