A BIG HUG BOOK: A family is like a cake

The Big Hug books grew out of letters sent to children and their families after their psychology sessions. Each book has its origins in a real need for a real child with a real problem and offers real strategies from a real psychologist. The heart-felt illustrations and simple words aim to simplify tricky situations and soothe strong emotions. The books aim to give children, and the people who care for them, a way to talk about problems. The Big Hug books acknowledge that some moments in life are tricky and encourage acceptance, problem solving and help-seeking as needed.

Cakes are made from many different ingredients to create something unique, delicious and amazing. A family is a lot like a cake. Families come in all shapes and sizes. They are the people who help us feel that we belong. Families give us help, support and love... even when we are apart from them. When we are with our family, we feel like we are home.
