Review - I can do it too!

I Can Do It Too!: Handprint BooksI Can Do It Too!: Handprint Books
By Karen Baicker
Illustrated by Ken Wilson-Max
18 pp ; board book, full color throughout, ages 2-4
ISBN 9780811875608

This heartwarming story reminds 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! The simple cadence of text and direct-to-the-heart art result in a book as warm and generous as its message, providing reading pleasure for toddlers, older siblings, and the grown-ups who love them.

Review - Sukie Noteblock

Sukie Noteblock by Darrell and Julia Gibbs (Chronicle books, Isbn-9780811873260) is a delightful 700p colorful noteblock that puts Spring/Summer right on your office desk.

I'm loving this colorful set and not just for the plentiful notes contained in this compact stack. The eye-catching art of stationery favorite Sukie wraps around the pages of this gorgeous full-color noteblock.
