About the book
Children and parents alike will delight in this joyous declaration of toddler independence. This book celebrates the feats of growing out of babyhood and starting to embrace the world on your own terms. Whether it’s being tall enough to reach a high shelf or brave enough to splash in the waves, Krensky and Gillingham address the small victories that come with growing just a little bit older. Energentic text and retro-fresh illustrations celebrate this important developmental stage with charm and relevance.

Note: illustrations are in the style of vintage screen prints, with imperfect variations in color and texture.

Praise for I Can Do It Myself
"Short and satisfying, these 'empowering celebrations' of burgeoning independence will encourage small children to see how far they've already come."
The Wall Street Journal

"Krensky celebrates the increasing independence of toddlers and their pride of accomplishment."
The Horn Book
