Hugless Douglas is in need of ‘a big bear hug’. As he goes in search of one, none seem quite right – too small, too short and too uncomfortable. Of course, there’s only one hug that will do – a hug from his mum! The audio is read by Alan Davies
Listen to an audio clip
Douglas is sideways on, reaching his arms around the green tree trunk to give it a big hug. Find his head on the right. It's turned towards us. He has three hairs sticking up on top of his head, between his ears. You can feel one round ear on the right - the other ear is pressed against the trunk. Trace over Douglas' dark brown face. Feel his two round eyes and his black nose.
