A picture book that's not just for kids but also by kids
Introducing You Can!
As the young contributors, we want to introduce you to You Can!, a very special picture book, full of advice, inspiration and hope.
But what makes it really special is that the text comes straight from children and young people (including us - the kids in charge of this website!) sharing the kind of advice that they wished they had known when they were younger. This really is kids empowering kids.
Our messages were brought to life by author Alexandra Strick and illustrator Steve Antony. It is published in the UK by Otter-Barry Books, October 2021 and in the USA by Candlewick Press in October 2022.
You Can is one of those rare children's books that is actually relevant to everyone, whoever they are and whatever their age.
This website tells you all about it, who created it, where to buy it, how kids can share their own ideas, messages and artwork inspired by the book.
