My older daughters, aged 19 and 15 love to read this to their little brother aged 20 months.
D.E. Bella
Purchased several for my grandson's first birthday and they appear thick and durable enough to withstand the demands of a toddler!
Lorna S
At 23 months, he still picks these books up and goes through them by himself from time to time.

This is one of my 15 month old little boy's favorite books. He loves the simple words (I CAN starts the story and then there is one word on each page: jump, bend, etc.) and the sweet babies who look like him! Next to the word on each page, I wrote in the date when he did the same thing as the baby in the illustration: when he first waved, when he first ran, etc. It is a lovely way to keep a memory. He brings me the book at least once every day with a big smile on his face. Since it is a board book, it's quite durable, too.

Format: Board book
Our son received the boxed set of four tiny board books including "I Can", "I Touch", "I Hear" and "I See" as a gift when he was born. These were the first books we ever read to him and we started when he was just a few months old.
Being small board books, they were great for a first book because our son could hold them and even chew on them and really get interested in the idea of a book. He could hold one while we read another. Being simple picture books with a cute baby as the focus, the books seem to hold an infants attention and we had lots of opportunity for interaction. I talked a lot about what the baby was doing and feeling -- as well as the other objects on each page.
When our son started standing and walking, he started imitated the actions in "I Can." At 23 months, he still picks these books up and goes through them by himself from time to time. The books have gotten so much use that they are falling apart!
I'm online looking for the boxed set to give to friends with a newborn...

My 17 month old son loves this book. Each page lists a simple action, such as falling, crawling, running, that we all have fun acting out together. It's a fun way to boost his understanding of simple verbs.

My older daughters, aged 19 and 15 love to read this to their little brother aged 20 months. He goes through all of the activities and the girls laugh and giggle while he bends, jumbs, dances and stretches. A book that encourages easy and quick to read and encourages involvement. Some evenings I think those girls read it to him a dozen times!

My daughters found this fun when they were babies and toddlers, and I found it simple enough to keep the attention of such young children. It can be a fun activity book, with the children mimicing everything they see.

We have always loved Helen Oxenbury's book, ever since my oldest child was a baby. The illustrations are simple, but they still leave lots of room to 'discuss' with a little one. Babies love looking at human faces, and this book definitely fits the bill! We also love the single word isolations.
I can't wait to give this book to my youngest son for Christmas, I know he'll love it as much as his older brother did!

I found this at the library. We have so many books at home, and some just don't spark my sons interest. So after bringing this book home, along with a few others, my son was drawn to this book. The simplicity and the drawings were very easy for him to understand. He was around 19 months at the time when I purchased I Can... and we have not been disappointed. I'm now looking to add more to our collection.

Great book for wee ones. The images are realistic and simple. I love that these books aren't busy like so many books. It helps my daughter focus on one thing at a time to have simple things to look at. This will also be great when she is first learning words.
