The idea of helping others is one that many children find exciting. Whether it is helping to cook dinner with a grownup or helping a friend who is sad feel better, kids are proud to be helpful. In David Hyde Costello’s picture book I Can Help we follow a simple story of helpfulness. As we travel through the jungle, we meet different animals who just need a little bit of help in order to make it through the day. Each character is able and willing to help each other, especially after receiving help themselves. Each page features no more than four words. This is a book that will be a great book for toddlers or for any reader who is looking for a simple story about helping one another. Bright pictures of the jungle with friendly animals on each page will make this a fun and engaging read. As you read the story together you can add more to the experience by naming the animals and asking what sounds each of them will make. See this book listed in our catalog
