There's lots to see and lots to do.
Can you turn the pages?
You can?Good for you!

Toddlers can do so many things-say their ABCs and 1-2-3s, wash with soap, drink from a cup, help dress themselves, and even say "please" and "thank you."

While they listen to the lively poems in this book about all the things they can do, toddlers can join in-they can play a game of peekaboo, parade with the alphabet, find their favorite colors, and much more. Chock full of fun, this is a book that children will turn to again and again.

With irresistible poems and eye-catching pictures, Stephanie Calmenson and Melissa Sweet joyfully capture a toddler's world and encourage children to feel good about their many accomplishments.
