Can I Come Too?
A very small mouse sets out to find something special―the biggest creature in the world. Along the way she meets a menagerie of animals, including a frog, a badger, and a tiger. But which is the biggest of all?
From a world-renowned author and artist team, this gentle cumulative tale pulls readers along as every new animal joins the mouse on her journey.
What I loved: The illustrations are really gorgeous with realistic animals and there is a wide range of animals shown, from a cat and dog to goat and polar bear. The simple story is great for young readers, such as preschoolers and early elementary school aged children. The repetitive text of asking if the next animal is the biggest before saying no but asking to come along makes simplicity fun and young children will like being able to predict what comes next before the animals discover the biggest animal in the world.
Final verdict: With lovely illustrations and a simple story, CAN I COME TOO? encourages young readers that even the smallest can have big adventures.
