Even Firefighters Hug Their Moms

Written by Christine Kole MacLean • Illustrated by Mike Reed

This story is about a boy that is too busy to hug his mom. He pretends to be a firefighter, police officer, EMT, a construction worker, a pilot, a train conductor, an astronaut and a garbage truck dirver. He uses his imagination about being a grown up. He realizes that mommies need hugs, too.

I liked the story because it was funny. The illustrations are good because they look real. This book reminds me of hugging my mom.

I recommend this book to children to make them happy. If you like firefighters, then you would like this book.
