How to Build a Hug: Temple Grandin and Her Amazing Squeeze Machine

Format: Hardcover

Availability: In stock


Women's History


As a young girl, Temple Grandin loved folding paper kites, making obstacle courses, and building lean-tos. But she really didn’t like hugs. Temple wanted to be held—but to her, hugs felt like being stuffed inside the scratchiest sock in the world; like a tidal wave of dentist drills, sandpaper, and awful cologne, coming at her all at once. Would she ever get to enjoy the comfort of a hug?

Age Group: school age

Written by Amy Guglielmo and Jacqueline Tourville. Illustrated by Giselle Potter.
