YES, I CAN! - THE ISLAND OF CONFIDENCE
(HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH - Island Adventures 8: Educational Children's Book Collection)
by Suzy Liebermann
A great uplifting book Suzy, Thank you.
If your child always felt that they couldn't complete something that everyone else could. Maybe something they wish they could do. However, have always felt scared to try anymore since they didn't do well the first few times. Then I have a great book for you. Yes, I Can! is another wonderful book by Suzy Liebermann. Not only does it show how a friend was there to help cheer Hugo on but it proves that with a little more practice, you can do just about anything.
I know how hard it is sometimes. I've actually never was good in doing alot of things. I really couldn't do some simple things that many kids could. Instead I'd just wish I could and put it behind me and move on thinking about other things. Unfortunately, after a few years I've decided to put goals in front of myself and accomplish these simple things that everyone else around me can do. Just like Hugo I practiced and finally was able to accomplish these goals with ease.
Unfortunately, its not easy and as you'll notice in this book, Hugo couldn't do it at first either, but with tons of practice he was able to succeed. I actually think everyone can do anything if they had encouragement and practice. So if you think your child may relate with having problems accomplishing certain tasks that seem to be bothersome. Then just get them this book and they will see, there is nothing to big or small that will be hard to accomplish.
