I Can Roar!

I Can Roar! illus. by Frank Asch. Kids Can. 2015. Board $14.95. ISBN 9781771385473.
Toddler—The distinguishing feature of this foot tall board book is the large die-cut circular hole, just right for toddlers to hold up and have their faces shine through. The pages are bedecked with Asch's signature simply outlined animal shapes (17 in all) and declarative sentences, such as "I can squeak like a mouse" and "I can oink like a pig." The very last page for little ones to peek through depicts a flower accompanied by the empowering message "I can be anything!" Something to roar about.
