Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This entry in the publisher’s I Like to Read series begins with two young alligators contemplating a sign posted on a tree: “Big Race Sunday.” The guy gator confides to the girl gator (so denoted by a pink bow), “I can win,” only to be told by a bully gator, “No you can’t.” So begins the boy gator’s training regimen—swimming, stretching, weight lifting, and running, all of it with his cheerleading friend right by his side. The book focuses on very few words, mostly iterations of “Cannot,” “Can so,” and “I can do it.” And, of course, at the very end: “I did it!” Easy-on-the-eyes white space surrounds the deceptively simple illustrations constructed from line drawings and a pale wash. With its common themes of self-doubt, confidence, and friendship, this charming book should be a perfect fit for preschoolers, many of whom will get to experience immediate reading success. Preschool. --Patricia Austin

Format: Library Binding
Here is a book that is so simple and fun. I would put this in the same category as Crosby Bonsall's Mine's the Best with an entire engaging story being told with a vocabulary of less than 25 words. An alligator dreams of winning a swim competition and with the encouragement of friends, puts in plenty of hard work on the journey to victory. You Can Do It! is a very appealing beginning reader, featuring loose watercolor illustrations. The endpages feature alligators warming up for athletic feats.

My 6 yr old said he love this book.
I thought it was a bit repetitive but good motivation for the kids on trying to achieve anything they try to do.
This was an easy read for him, great way to keep kids reading.
