Snug as Hug, by Marcia Vaughan & Pamela Lofts

Joey is sleeping curled up in Mum’s pouch.
Koala is resting on a limb like a couch.
Turtle is dreaming far out in the sea.
Cockatoo is yawning high up in a tree.

This wonderfully Australian offering is a delightful bedtime book which will appeal to parents and children alike. Snug as a Hug is a rhyming offering which visits the Animals of the bush as they settle down for the night before focussing in on the child also settling down for the night, with the parent-reader’s reassurance that they’ll be close by all night.

The illustrations, in the soft tones of the night time bush show the animals settling down, with the final spread showing soft toy versions of the animals on the child’s bed.

Perfect for children from birth to preschool, this is sure to be a favourite bed time offering.
