    Hugs and Kisses tells the tale of a puppy named Hugs. He awakes one morning and decides to head out on a very important mission. The investigative pup begins to collect kisses from all of the animals around the farm.The animals are happy to help but cannot stop wondering what Hugs is up to. Will Hugs be able to complete his secret mission?I found this story to be a delightful read. Children ages 3 through 9 will fall in love with Hugs and the rest of the farm animals. I loved the overall theme of the book as well. Eve Tharlet's illustrations are gorgeous. Her use of pastels is truly remarkable. Each character is more beautiful than the last.Overall, this is a wonderful read for the emergent reader.

    I fell head over heels in love with little Hugs the dog in this story. Early one morning he sneaks away from his sleeping family because "there was something he had to find out." He wanders around the farm asking all the animals for a kiss. The descriptions of all of the kisses he receives are wonderful - and the illustrations are filled with tenderness and emotion. I just wish there were more than five stars to give this book! My story time audience fell in love with Hugs as well - and the kids loved pointing to the spot on their bodies, where Hugs had just asked for a kiss (check, nose, top of the head...) as we turned the page.

    A little puppy named Hugs woke up very early one morning and set out to discover something. Hugs went and saw a duck, a horse, a pig, a rabbit, and a butterfly. Hugs got kisses from all of them. All of their kisses were different and special in their own unique way, but the kisses that Hugs loved the most were from his family. This is a very cute book that was originally published in Switzerland with the title Mana, ich hab Dich lieb. This would be a good book to use in a unit about stories from other cultures and could be used with a world map and pins to mark stories from different countries that we share in class throughout the year.

    Hugs is an adorable little puppy who live on a farm with his parents and sisters. One morning he wakes up with only on thing on his mind…kisses. He approaches all different kids of animals on the farm and asks them to give him a kiss. All of the animals give him a kiss and each kiss is very different. Vocabulary and narrative skills can be illustrated in this story as Hugs points out different parts of his body and using great words to describe each kiss. The book is great for kids ages 2-4 years old.

    This is probably my favorite from the series from Loupy/Tharet. Hugs goes out in search of something and gets a kiss from all of the farm animals and a bunny and butterfly that just happen to come by to compare to the one from his mom. Just adorable. The illustrations are nice as always and all the animals kept my son interested. You could use it to teach body parts (cheek, nose, forehead, neck, mouth) and adjectives too, if you're child's brilliant and patient. Mine... not so much.

    My insanely busy 2 year old son sat through this entire book on our first attempt. He didn't even try to turn the pages early or say "dun, dun" He did however make the animal sounds of all the animals hugs the puupy greeted and asked for a kiss. It was a very sweet, but, and fun book. My 6 year old also really enjoyed the first and last pages of wordless illustration. It was a map for her to route out puppies journey.

    Hugs the puppy sets out early one morning while his family is still sleeping because he has something he needs to find out. The kind farm animals along the way help him with his requests and when he returns to the barn and his family he finds the answer for which he was looking!
