No Kiss–No Hug

Appearance Date: 11/6/2021

Li-Li loves many things like watching Dora, playing with her dog, reading lots of books, Pops’s piggyback rides, and being with her family. However, there are two things she doesn’t like: KISSES and HUGS! Li-Li dislikes them more than anything! She and her family travel to Tullahoma, TN to visit her Mema and Pops, who LOVE kisses and hugs more than Christmas and birthdays! How can Li-Li tell Mema and Pops that she loves them, but not their kisses and hugs…WITHOUT having a Li-Li Letdown?
