'If You're Groovy and You Know It, Hug a Friend' by Eric Litwin, art by Tom Lichtenheld, will have readers singing along to the familiar tune that the book presents. The pictures capture instances of friendship, kindness, fun, and exploration, leading readers to consider what they might do to be groovy in their own way. There is much to be said for stories that encourage action, as children nowadays are sometimes stuck in front of electronic devices, while this book showcases outside activities - a definite plus.

It's almost a given that readers will be singing along with the story, bringing a love of this new spin on the song to a new generation, and instilling a love of imagination and fun activities in the hearts and minds of children.
