Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Things get easier every day. Just watch what I can do today! This affirming story celebrates how baby animals in the forest accomplish goals, whether itand#8217;s a baby bear finding food, a young spider spinning a web, or a small bird flying from the nest for the first time. The tender, rhyming text compares these achievements to those of a child who is learning to ride his bike or catch a ball.

The perfect story to encourage young readers to try new things or keep the faith when faced with challenges, Look What I Can Do! honors the important milestones that children achieve each day.

Praise for Look What I Can Do!

"Baby animals strive to and#147;stand up strong,and#8221; leap high and and#147;spin a trap.and#8221; But learning is full of challenges, distractions and fun. In this message-driven tale, children see how various creatures struggle to develop and gain confidence."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"This gently affirming tale is perfect for parent-and-child sharing and offers many opportunities for discussion."

Review:

"Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare, the cotton-tailed father-son stars of McBratney and Jeram's Guess How Much I Love You, hop back onto the scene for two board books that introduce preschool concepts via sweet-natured stories. The Hares' easygoing exchanges, familiar to fans of the original picture book, are set off to great effect as the son poses such queries as 'What's your favorite red?' (in Colors Everywhere) or 'What does an egg turn into?' (in When I'm Big). At every turn, Nutbrown Hare replies briefly, supplying clear bits of information ('I think maybe those berries' and 'A bird,' respectively); his answers both satisfy his young charge as well as encourage further discussion. Jeram's sunny ink-and-watercolor illustrations — sprightly spot art and spreads — offer subtle yet solid reinforcement of the text, playfully challenging youngest readers to explore a grassy riverbank or flower-filled meadow and come to their own conclusions. Weaving color identification and size/growth comparison into pleasant spring outings, the approach in these books feels like a fresh and logical expansion of the popular characters' world. Ages 2-4." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

After a decade of enchanting millions of readers of all ages, the treasured Guess How Much I Love You deserves some loving treatment all its own.
