Diverse children demonstrate joy in security.
With satisfying stretches and snuggles, toddlers cuddle pets, clothing and one another. Brief phrases set up natural page turns, while a buoyant conclusion gathers it all together. "As snug as a fox / in hand-knitted socks, // As snug as a cat / curled up on a mat. // As snug as a hug // A hug is SO snug!" The adorable tots, with no temper tantrum in sight, interact with people and the natural world through the ebb and flow of the seasons. Their distinct senses of style convey individual personalities; youngsters don colorful knit hats, and a polka-dotted pink wheelchair adds pizzazz. Quiet watercolors calm, while dark, colored swirls add interest to mixed-media scenes. Squiggly lines and tissue-paper patches add depth through textured layers.
A comforting celebration in an oversized format. (Board book. 1-3)
