You Can Do It, Sam
February 5th, 2017
My childhood favorite book was You Can Do It, Sam by Amy Hest. The book is colorful and shows how the relationship between mother and son. It reminds me so much of my mom and me. My mom always told me, “Katelyn, You can do it, no matter what people said to you. Don’t let people judge you who you are.” The reason why I love this book is because there are many good vocabularies and describing words. For example, “the truck is green” and “put the cakes in the red bag.” Also, I love their relationship because they will make the cakes for their friends. My mom and I love to give people the foods, toys, and anything.
My favorite part in the book is mother bear told Sam to drop the bag by the door. Sam is scared. Mother bear said, “You can do it, Sam.” Then, Sam walked and dropped the bag by the door. He runs to the truck and said, “I did it!” “Of course,” Mrs. Bear said. It is Sam’s first act of bravery. It has inspired me because I’m the brave child who my parent taught very well. Every child will have their own bravely.
I believe this book is great for pre-school to the third grader. This is the good start to teaching children to learn how to be brave and make the homemade foods or things to give their neighbor or families. I believe children will learn the book and begin their own brave.
