Ahead of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share my favourite fun books about love for kids. The books are The Hug, The Kiss and Slug in Love.
What are The Hug and The Kiss about?
The Hug and The Kiss are by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. The books can be opened from either side and follow different animals, looking for a hug or a kiss.
Tiger and Crocodile and both looking for a kiss goodnight. But no one wants to give them one. Each animal they come across thinks of an excuse but eventually that changes.
The hug is a similar idea to The Kiss but instead the characters are a hedgehog and a tortoise. Both are feeling sad. That is until they meet each other.
Slug in Love: Another fun book about love
The Slug in Love is a picture book by Rachel Bright and Nadia Shireen. It follows Doug, who is lonely slug. He’s looking for love but finds it very hard to find. But it does eventually come along.This book is a lovely and fun book about love for kids. It has an important message that it can take a while but does come along! Whilst you might not be everybody’s cup of tea, there’s always someone out there.
These books are all a bit of fun and great as bedtime stories for very young children! Make sure to check out my other bedtime story recommendations.
