These heartwarming stories remind us how satisfying it is to grow up surrounded by love. "I Can Do It Too!" affirms a little girl's growing independence as she, too, can begin to do all the things she sees her parents, relatives and neighbors do: pouring juice at breakfast, strumming a guitar, and even riding a bike! In "You Can Do It Too!" she passes newly won skills and abilities to a younger brother, teaching him everything she thinks he needs to know. The simple cadence of text and direct-to-the-heart art result in two books as warm and generous as their message, providing reading pleasure for toddlers, older siblings, and the grown-ups who love them.
