While visiting her Grandparents for Thanksgiving, 5 year old Shana was asked by her Grandfather for a hug, but Shana didn't want to hug her Grandfather, and instead told him that she was "all out of hugs and had to go to the store to buy more!" On the surface, The Hug Store is about the joy and benefits of hugging, but the underlying themes will inspire children to honor and trust their instincts when they don't feel like hugging another person.
The Hug Store is an enchanting tale of self-discovery that beautifully illustrates how life's greatest gifts can never be bought, and are instead, always found deep within us. The Hug Store is endorsed by several nationally recognized health care professionals including clinical psychologist Dr. Shefali Tsabury, who Oprah Winfrey advocates is the best parenting professional she's ever interviewed.
