From Guess How Much I Love You author Sam McBratney comes this tender story of comfort and family. Little Hansie Bear is playing when he falls into a deep-down ditch and has to be helped out by his dad. With a “There, there” and a hug, Hansie is soon off to play again. So when Dad hurts his foot, Hansie knows just what to do—a “There, there,” a big hug, and everything is all right again.
“A deeply resonant story.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
