I Can Do It Too! by Karen Baicker is a book that focuses on a child’s ability to do the same activities that older relatives and siblings can do. From pouring juice in the morning for breakfast to singing and playing guitar with her uncle, the vivid illustrations make clear connections with the text emphasizing the specific task that the child is trying to conquer while increasing her confidence. The visible brush strokes make the illustrations come alive. The rhyme schemes used throughout the b...more
A Review
The book and illustrations are cute enough.

The underlying message and reading level are appropriate for kids between 1.5 and 3 years.

It is important to teach little ones that they can do things for themselves and hopefully to approach every challenge as an opportunity. Of course, it is also important to teach them when and how to ask for help, so this book might be best if coupled with a story about asking for help or staying away from danger.
Empowerment for babies!
A book perfect for toddlers. In this book the character does everything like her family members. And even when she is a little off, she is proud of herself. At the end of the story, she is able to be proud of her younger sibling. This book captures the toddler desire to try to do everything by herself and mimicking. A great book for new big brothers and sisters, too.
This is a fun one with great, bold images for toddlers. It's perfectly reflective of what a toddler's world is made up of -- things that they're learning to do, things that their family and friends do. The refrain of "I can do it, too!" is what makes it work so well -- get the kids and their caretakers to say it along with you.
Burbank Library Children's Department
Perfect for little ones who have said so many times "I can do it too!" This adorable picture book follows a little girl as she pours her own juice, buttons her own sweater, and does all sorts of other things throughout the day all by herself.

Oct 10, 2008 Kate Hastings rated it 5 of 5 stars Recommends it for: toddlers rhyming myself growing
Shelves: rhyming-text
Great book to do for "myself" theme or "growing up" -- a girl shows her family how she can read, play guitar, and get dressed like the rest of her family. Simple, rhyming text will appeal to toddlers and preschoolers with short attention spans.
Simple rhyming text with a great toddler hook. Also, a Zim illustrator!
A great illustration of child development that parents AND kids can relate to.
I can do everything my family members do (-:
Perfect for a 4 year old who loves to imitate.
