“I Can, Can you?”
Written and Photographed by Marjorie W. Pitzer

Overview:
Babies and toddlers with Down syndrome, like all young children, want to discover their world and take on new experiences. I CAN, CAN YOU? is a delightful board book full of babies and toddlers with Down syndrome going about the business of their lives. Presented in crisp, uncluttered, full-color photographs, these children swim, eat spaghetti, laugh, play ball, and more--looking adorable all the while!

I CAN, CAN YOU? is the perfect book for parents and children to enjoy together. As your child sits on your lap and you read to him, he'll see other children with Down syndrome modeling some things he can do and some which he will soon do. Reinforce your child's abilities ("Look at the boy going down the slide. You can do that!") and encourage the possibilities ("Do you see the girl drawing a picture?"). What's more, as you read to your child and as he plays with the book and turns the pages, he will gain important pre-reading skills.
