From the Editor

I often think the world would be a kinder place if we embraced the sentiments found on the pages of picture books. Just take Bernard, a bird with impossibly long wings. He can’t fly, try as he might, and his friends fly off. But does he feel sorry for himself? Well, yes, for a bit. But when he comes upon a sad orangutan, he stops thinking about himself and focuses on how he can help, which as it turns out is with a great big hug.

The next thing he knows, there’s a parade of lions, giraffes, bats, and even a very brave worm waiting for a chance to tell him their problems and get one of his famous hugs. In the end, Bernard discovers that the thing that makes him different not only brings him purpose and joy, but lifts up so many others too. One hug, this charming book reminds us, can make all the difference.

- Kelsey Skea, Editor


Editorial Reviews

Review

“Readers will agree: All differences should be hugged, er, embraced.” Kirkus Reviews

“The lesson is a simple, familiar one—selflessness and sympathy are key to making friends—but Adamson’s gentle humor and his eager-eyed characters’ yearning become an eloquent testimony to the power of a little TLC.” Publishers Weekly

“Adamson’s warm and expressive watercolor and pencil illustrations show Bernard wrapped around a ticklish crocodile, snuggled up beside a blissed-out bunny, and patiently listening to a bat’s troubles during an evening therapy session. This small bird discovers he can reach new heights by leaning on his peers…Told with humor and heart, this sweet friendship tale soars.” School Library Journal

“[A] humorous story with an important takeaway: our differences can be the very thing that make us dear to others, and embracing those differences can lead to the best things in life.” Booklist

“Adamson’s watercolor and pencil art moves from vibrant full spreads to vignette-styled pages, lending both movement and focus, and wide-eyed, lavender-hued Bernard cuts an appealingly quirky figure with his wiggly wings…a celebration of cuddles and snuggles.” The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
