You Can Do It, Samby Amy Hest
Synopses & Reviews
Sam goes all by himself to deliver treats to his friends in an endearing new tale from the creators of the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller KISS GOOD NIGHT and DON'T YOU FEEL WELL, SAM?

"Go, go, go!" Mrs. Bear put
her arm around Sam.
"You can do it, Sam."
It happened one winter morning, when the moon was still up, making moonbeams and shadows on Plum Street. In the little white house, Mrs. Bear and Sam were baking golden-brown cakes for their friends. "Come

In their third story about Sam and Mrs. Bear, Amy Hest and Anita Jeram capture a childs simple joy of giving - and a quiet moment of confidence that will warm the coldest winter day.
