Nobody Hugs a Cactusby Carter Goodrich
I Need a Hug by Aaron Blabey
Sing (To the tune of "If you’re happy and you know it")
If you want to hear a story, clap your hands If you want to hear a story, clap your hands If you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, clap your hands.
More verses: Stomp your feet, spin around, do all three, sit right down.

Action Rhyme- I Have A Little Heart
I have a little heart, (place hand over heart) And it goes thump, thump, thump (pat chest three times) It keeps right on beating, When I jump, jump, jump (jump three times) I get a special feeling, when I look at you. (point to child) It makes me want to give you a hug or two. (hug yourself)
