The Lovereading4Kids comment

Everyone is different and some people are better at doing certain things than other people. I Can, You Can, Toucan tells the story of 3 friends: one tall, one short and one who can fly. Together they can do everything, but individually they realise they can’t . A real feel good story. Green Bananas make reading fun.


I Can, You Can, Toucan! by Sue Mayfield

Best friends Toucan, Giraffe and Penguin all have something special about them but it takes the others to point it out. Giraffe feels he is too tall, Penguin wants to fly, and Toucan is embarrassed by his big yellow beak. But they discover that they can use their differences to help their friends. A lovely story about friendship and celebrating differences, suitable for ages 4 and above.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
