Pearl the porcupine loves giving hugs, but has to figure out a way of doing it without hurting her friends with her quills.

Unadulterated adorable.

Re-read January 28, 2015. Still adorable. ( )

I loved the illustrations in this sweet, slight book. Pearl the porcupine has the slightest rosy blush, and her tiny face is so expressive that you want to hug her. Oh, wait! Hugging Pearl can be problematic, or so her classmates find out. What Pearl tries in order to make herself more huggable makes up the entire story here. Would be fun to read aloud, especially with a prickly child. ( )

Who wouldn't want to hug such an adorable porcupine? ( )

Sweet and soft, like a hug itself (although not one from Pearl!), and beautifully illustrated. There's a wonderful message here about loving yourself and loving others, and finding creative solutions to difficult problems! ( )
