THE LITTLE FUR FAMILY by Margaret Wise Brown. My kids adored it.

THE KISSING HAND by Audrey Penn comes to mind...but I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "warm and fuzzy". Do you mean feel good books? Or books about love? Or feel good books about love and fuzzy animals? lol

It's possible I have a broader definition of "warm and fuzzy" than some people, because I include books that I just find strongly emotional with an element of genuine sadness or loss to them, like THE SEA SERPENT AND ME - that one gets me every time. Other warm-and-fuzzy faves (not all of them have that touch of sadness, btw) are TEN LITTLE FINGERS AND TEN LITTLE TOES, ALL THE WORLD, FLORA's VERY WINDY DAY, THE QUIET BOOK, and MAD AT MOMMY.

Not sure if it's still in print, but my daughter's favorite was Bunny My Honey.
I also love You Are My I Love You and Time for Bed.
