THE HUG WHO GOT STUCK, Teaching children to access their heart and get free from sticky thoughts.
This exceptional bedtime story for ages 4 to 8 follows the adventures of Hug, a hero who got stuck as he was headed for the heart for which it was made. Will Hug navigate past The Web of Sticky Thoughts to deliver love and care to the one special heart for which it was intended? The illustrations in this book are truly magical. You can explore the Hug Factory in the center of the heart, finding something new each time your read. It helps kids to learn that sometimes it takes surrender for everything to get better.
The book ends with Your Daily Hug Meter, a short set of questions to help children open to giving and receiving love, and the value of surrender as an antidote to Sticky Thoughts.
"A gentle reminder how our negative thoughts block the flow to our heart, and how hugs help free us."

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I was so impressed by these books. The stories are meaningful and easy to understand, the artwork is beautiful, but the messages and practices are what impressed me the most. I read one to my three year old godson and we did the breathing and gratitude exercises and he loved it. We both did! I feel like adults and kids could benefit from the content of these books.
My grandsons love the books! I will be getting more books in the near future.
I bought these for my grandchildren-if only I had them for my own children. They are brilliantly funny for adults and the breathing and exercises just wonderful. I can't say enough about how wonderful and perfect for our time these books are...
We ordered “The Hug Who Got Stuck + The Boy Who Searched for Silence + How Diablo Became Spirit.” We read all 3 books the first night. My 5-year-old and I were blown away. The illustrations are impeccable (with the factory in “The Hug...” being my personal favourite page). My little one picks the books we read each evening. The first 3 nights we read all three books and now one is included every evening. It brings a sense of calm and closeness to the closing of the day. Thank you from my family to yours.
Cute book; solid message
