From Inside Edition correspondent Megan Alexander comes a charming debut children's picture book, One More Hug. The story is about a young boy discovering the comfort of unconditional love and reassurance.

The book was inspired by Megan's oldest son, Chase, who experienced anxiety getting on the school bus. He kept running back for "one more hug." The idea stuck with Megan, and the book was born. 

This is a darling story for all ages, demonstrating that fears and worries are normal and important to talk about. Whether jitters on a windy night, butterflies when the curtain rises, or nerves getting on the school bus, this book beautifully illustrates the sweet moments of childhood anxiety. It reminds us how important it is to offer reassurance to a child. 

Published by Simon & SchusterOne More Hug is available now and can be ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million along with independent bookstores. 

To complement the story, Megan also co-wrote and recorded an original song, called "One More." Co-written with country music singer Lucas Hoge and acclaimed songwriter Michael Hunter Ochs, the song is available for download on all music platforms now. Click here to watch the music video.

"One More Hug is the perfect book to share with a child! Demonstrating that fears and worries are natural, normal and ok to talk about."
Delilah, nationally syndicated radio host.

"This book and song are precious. As a Mother, it touched my heart and brought tears! Megan gives us a gift with One More Hug."
Ainsley Earhardt, Fox and Friends, Fox News Morning Anchor
