Anyone can pour juice, bake a cake, and kiss away hurtsright? But maybejust maybeits not so easy when you are very small!
Daddy pours juice without even thinking about it, Grandma bakes a cake effortlessly, and the next-door neighbor rides a bike as if he were born on one! Whatever is happening, our little heroine wants to join in and do it too. With caring support from her family and many friends, she not only finds she can do it too, but soon she is big enough to pass on loving encouragement of her own. The simple cadence of the text and the direct-to-the-heart art result in a book as warm and generous as its message.
