The Hug by David Grossman (Duckworth, £12.99)

Learning about the world around them can be a daunting undertaking for children, but The Hug is a poignant and charming book which tackles big philosophical ideas in a way that is easy for young readers understand.

Written by celebrated author David Grossman, The Hug tells the moving story of Ben, who suddenly realises that no two living creatures are alike. Immediately he feels different and lonely, but his mother soon reassures him and helps Ben to understand that in fact that makes him unique and special.

Acclaimed artist Michal Rovner has provided beautifully sparse, simple illustration to accompany David’s engaging prose. It’s a gorgeous book for parents to read with their children, which also provides a very beautiful, and important, life lesson.
