Recommendations for Reluctant Readers!
Best for Dramatised Reading for 0-3 years old: 抱抱 Hug
Little Chimp Bobo is looking for his Mama. Touching reunion at the end.
🐵 Perfect first Chinese book or for "kantang" parents. Whole story only has the text 抱抱, 宝宝, 妈妈
🐵 Ends in endless hugs and giggles
🐵 Room for lots of interaction and acting out of story
🐵 Can be re-read countless times! My own copy is tattered and torn. That says enough!
Bobo needs a hug. But his friends don't seem to understand. "Hug," he implores, time and again. Time and again his puzzled pals—from the smallest chameleon to the tallest giraffe—shrug and cuddle with their jungle mothers. As the lonely chimp's plea escalates, his friends grow concerned. Can the elephants lead Bobo to his heart's desire? Jez Alborough, the acclaimed author-illustrator transforms a total of three words—and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created—into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with a book that only had 3 words... but it turned out to be such a hit! Baby and I read it while he’s holding his soft monkey, and each time 抱抱 appears, everyone gets a hug (including monkey)! We’re also currently betting which word he will speak first. I hope of course, that it will be 妈妈！
My boy loves this book!
This book has been read so much the spine is giving way. The children dramatise it all the time, weeping and shouting 抱抱！ we love simple book with strong messages of love like this one. Definitely a keeper!
Bao Bao is such a sweet book to read with my toddler. Simple words but strong meaning. We love the illustrations that also allows me to discuss different expressions illustrated on the characters in the story. A good bedtime story to get lots of cuddles before we end the day!
