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
Kids love to involve themselves. This book is about that.

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.

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.

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.

A wonderful picture book about a little girl who tells us all the things her family can do that she can do too. Her refrain throughout the book is, "I Can Do It Too." It is a great way to get toddlers excited to be self sufficient.

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.
Miss Sarah
A toddler goes through their day repeating the actions of those around it and saying I can do it too. A little long but with the toddlers repeating I can do it too, I think they can do it. Nice sense of celebrating accomplishments.

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.

I read this book three times. The kids love it. They love filling in the blanks when I stopped reading. They enjoyed filling in "I can do it too". Great read for children 1 - 3 years old.
