Rates and reviews on some of my favorite children books. As well as, how I would use them in my classroom. :)

Everyone Deserves a Hug!

— feeling love
How Do You Hug a Porcupine? - Laurie Isop, Gwen Millward

How Do You Hug A Porcupine? is one of my absolute favorite books! I would read this to lower grades (K-2) and for each animal I would ask how they think they would hug that specific animal. I would then read the book and compare the answers from the students to the actual text. Next, we would go over how everyone deserves love and you should never judge a book by its cover. I would remind them how our classroom is filled with hugs and love and not discrimination.
