    Ary you saying my simplification is right? beacuse I do not understand the exact meaning of "to ha
    nd you the book. "

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
    "to hand" means "to give" in your sentence.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
