We Can Do It! (英语) 精装 – 1998年2月26日
Finally, there is a clear, attractive, and beautifully presented book that shows children with disabilities interacting with others and doing all of the things that children usually do. This book will motivate disabled children, sensitize and encourage their families and friends andâ¦also have a positive impact on children without disabilities. --Albert Einstein College of Medicine
We Can Do It! is very well produced, with full color photographs on every page. Supported by a series of brief captions, ideal because they contribute to the positive images being established. The photographs offer glimpses into the lives of five children, all of whom have disabilities. These are incredibly uplifting, doggedly showing young children as active participants, contributing positively to the world around them. I've used the book many times now and find that my class' interest is stimulated by those images. --Special Magazine

Teachers and parents should see this as a jumping off point for a discussion because it introduces terms such as cerebral palsy and down syndrome without explanation and the definitions provided in the back are not kid friendly. Don't just introduce this book to preschoolers blindly. You should be prepared to answer any questions they may have about the conditions.
Overall it's a really great and cute book. The focus on inclusion and positivity is great. I love it!
My favorite photo is the one of the boy in his walker playing in the sprinkler; seeing his joy reminds of another famous photo of children playing under a street sprinkler, and of my own childhood. This must be why little children love this book. They get to examine children who are a little different having fun. Perhaps it helps them answer their unasked questions. But believe me, small children LOVE this book.
