Did you know that January 21st is National Hugging Day? This little bear in the story loves his monkey friends and gives them lots of hugs. Sometimes they give each other a five second hug which is considered a quick hug. If you have time, you can give a slow hug which can last up to ten seconds. But before you give a hug you always want to be sure to ask the person first.
