Why I Like This Book:
An adorable story in rhyme that highlights things Keisha Ann CAN do as oppose to things she is not able to do or has a hard time doing. The story gives a positive look at school, all the fun things children can learn and do at school. School is fun. For a child who may not be very fond of school because they may not be good at things other children are good at, Keisha Ann Can! is great for building confidence and show that they CAN do many things too. I love the diversity of races represented in the book.
