Cuddle up for a sweet bedtime story!

Little Cub is a cute and curious lion cub on a big adventure. Follow along as he travels with his mother safely by his side, exploring a world full of small discoveries and large wonders.

With lyrical rhymes and cuddly illustrations in a soft padded board book format, A BIG HUG FOR LITTLE CUB is a reassuring tale of toddler curiosity and a parent’s joy at seeing their little one hard at play from morning till night.


Padded board books are always my favorite, and this is a cute one. Want to share a day in the life of lion cub with your own little human cub? Let’s jump in! Little Cub is with Momma Lion and is off for a day of running, roaring and fun. My two year old (that loves lions!) was uber excited about this book. While the preschooler and toddler did call them Nala and Simba (thanks Disney) they knew they were lion cubs and were delighted to see them and read this story over and over again. Cute and curious and tons of fun!
