You Can Do It, Sam by Amy Hest and illustrated by Anita Jeram is a story about a bear named Sam who goes on a little neighborly adventure with his mother.
You Can Do It, Sam
It’s a wintry morning on Plum Street, and Mrs. Bear and Sam are making cakes to share with their neighbors. Sam waits for the cakes to be done and cool enough to deliver.
When the cakes are ready, Mrs. Bear and Sam load them up into Mrs. Bear’s green truck and take off.
But the biggest surprise is when Mrs. Bear tells Sam to carry the cake all the way up to their neighbor’s house by himself! Through the deep snow! Can Sam do such a big thing alone?
Snow, baking cakes, a green truck, neighbors, and a warm fire at the end. What could be more cozy?
This is a great book to read with little ones who are learning to be brave and do things on their own.
We read this book to Caroline so many times that I can confidently say you should definitely add You Can Do It, Sam (and all the other Same books) to your bookshelf!
