“This is too cute!” was the first thing I said when I read and looked at the illustrations in Pixel Mouse House new eBook The HuggaSnuggas: a Cozy Calendar. I absolutely love the illustrations and story by Ted Enik. The story is about Little Emma who wrote a poem about each of her snugga’s (stuffed animals). The poems are really sweet such as the one about her penguin. “For January this Penguin chick would pick a snowfall, very thick. Did I mention how much I love the illustrations? They are gorgeous and just so darn cute!
One of my favorite poems was the one about the monkey. “A Monkey’s favorite time to play is Silly August Saturdays.” Each of her twelve special stuffed “snuggas,” a wolf, monkey, butterfly, robin, and even a crab all have poems written just for and about them. This is a great eBook to read to your toddler at nighttime. It could turn into a fun activity as well where you both come up with ideas to write a poem/story about their favorite stuffed animal! My daughter was obsessed with the little rubber Sophie the Giraffe until she was about one years old and then moved onto a Build-A-Bear yellow tabby she calls “Captain Kitty.” We just might have to make up a fun story about Captain Kitty after reading this sweet tale. Image the stories you can make up together using this eBook as inspiration!
Another feature I like is that it helps to teach children the months of the year. It starts with January and the penguin and ends with December and the owlet. “On a dark December night, an owlet shines with feathers white.”
The HuggaSnuggas: A Cozy Calendar is a nice addition to your nightly bedtime stories. You can’t help but fall in love with little Emma and her snugga’s!
