Terrific Tuesday

There, There by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Ivan Bates is a truly sweet book. If you're looking for a picture book that has Daddy helping with the child, then There, There is a good one.  Hansie the little bear falls down, gets dirt in his eyes and gets a bump on his head.  Daddy bear helps him up and give him a hug and tells him, "there, there."  So Hansie knows what to do when Daddy comes home with a ouchie and he needs some loving comfort.
This title uses soft, pastel colors that goes along with it's soft, sweet message.  The illustrations were done in mixed media.
I would use this in Storytime with three year-olds and older.  It's a little long for a toddler storytime.  If you skipped around, you might be able to use it with the youngest children.
