A hug feels good. 
Let's hug again.
We'll hug at nine.
We'll hug at ten.

When is it time for a hug? Anytime! This feel-good picture book assures kids there's plenty of love to go around-the-clock.
From the moment Little Bunny wakes up in the morning until the moon comes out and the stars shine, every hour includes a warm hug from Big Bunny. Whether they bake or build, bike or hike, a caring hug always feels just right. This is a book that is generous with love, and full of the sweetest illustrations you've ever seen.

“Wash our faces, comb our hair,/ choose the clothes we like to wear./ Eat from a bowl, drink from a mug—/ What times is it?/ Time for a hug!” As the bunnies hug, a green clock reads nine, and it’s time for another hug at 10 o’clock, too (the clock reflects the hour’s passing).
