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?
"Little ones will find this both a suitable precursor to nap time and a spur to be brave and act generously — just like Sam." — BOOKLIST
Amy Hest is the award-winning author of many books for children, including KISS GOOD NIGHT and DON'T YOU FEEL WELL, SAM?, her first two books about Sam and Mrs. Bear; WHEN JESSIE CAME ACROSS THE SEA, illustrated by P.J. Lynch, which received the Christopher Medal; and the beloved Baby Duck series, illustrated by Jill Barton. Of her inspiration for YOU CAN DO IT, SAM, she says, "I love snowy days! I love being out in the snow . . . and coming in from the snow . . . and the wonderful smell of something baking in the oven on snowy days."
Anita Jeram is the illustrator of GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU by Sam McBratney and KISS GOOD NIGHTand DON'T YOU FEEL WELL, SAM? by Amy Hest. She is also the author-illustrator of I LOVE MY LITTLE STORYBOOK; BUNNY MY HONEY; and ALL TOGETHER NOW. Of YOU CAN DO IT, SAM, she says, "One thing my kids have taught me is that parenting is a process. Sometimes they seem to grow so fast, sometimes so slowly, but growth for us and our children is a matter of thousands of tiny heroic steps, each one a heartwarming story just like this one."
