After a short hiatus, I hope to bring another joyous book recommendation!
The Pic Pick of the day is Hugs from Pearl By Paul Schmid.
Have you ever wanted to do something that makes others feel better, but don't know how to do it?
Sometimes things that are easy for some people can be very difficult for others. Hugs from Pearl tells the story of a lovely porcupine named Pearl who loves giving people hugs.
But in case you didn't remember — porcupines can be quite spiky! Can Pearl still do what she wants, even if nature makes it a bit difficult?
