Grand Central Pub
Anyone can pour juice, bake a cake, and kiss away hurtsright? But maybejust maybeits not so easy when you are very small!
Daddy pours juice without even thinking about it, Grandma bakes a cake effortlessly, and the next-door neighbor rides a bike as if he were born on one! Whatever is happening, our little heroine wants to join in and do it too. With caring support from her family and many friends, she not only finds she can do it too, but soon she is big enough to pass on loving encouragement of her own. The simple cadence of the text and the direct-to-the-heart art result in a book as warm and generous as its message.

Baker & Taylor
Supported by her family, an African American girl is self confident about what she can do and in turn supports a younger family member.

Fun and cute story of a girl imitating and learning skills from family and friends like how to bake a cake, read a book, etc.

Simple to read. Uses repetitive language to capture the child's attention and reinforce reading skills.
