Our youngest listeners have "those" days too and when that day comes, this is the book to pull from the bookshelf and share.
A little brown softie of a bear named Hansie sets out with a smile and a joie de vivre doing his best to walk like a duck until ... uh, oh... down in the ditch he tumbles and he can't get out. Thank goodness his dad comes to the rescue with a hug and a "there, there."
Hansie is ready to play again and again and each time something pops up to need a "there, there."
Comfort and reassurance stream like a calm breeze from the pages of this book. It's filled with gentle warmth, animals reminiscent of Garth Williams and a glow that says love is all around.
Wonderful book to calm a troubled child and lovely read aloud before bedtime.
