As reassuring as a well-loved toy, here's a story that speaks directly to children, showing how a grandparent and grandchild deal together with loneliness. When Grandpa's beloved dog, Billy, must stay at the hospital for an operation, Katie knows that he will miss his recovering companion. Much to Grandpa's surprise and pleasure, Katie lends him something from the heart to keep him company-her stuffed bunny, Rabbit, which is her most favorite thing in the world.
Carol Thompson's expressive paintings and the pitch-perfect text convey a simple message of compassion and reveal a comforting secret: Nobody outgrows the need for something to hug at night.
