Pelican’t Do It by Cate Sawyer and illustrated by Kyle Tweed, a dynamic picture book that will have your engaged 4-7 year old turning the pages.

Pelican’t Do It Synopsis:

Pelican’t and Pelican are twins. Pelican is dead-set lucky, but poor Pelican’t is the unluckiest pelican to ever have lived. Pelican rides the highest waves with the dolphins, whereas poor Pelican’t … well … you need to see it to believe it. And you’ll never guess what happens to him when he tries to land gracefully just like his twin brother on a lightpole. Let’s just say Pelican’t manages to turn up the voltage!

Then one day, Pelican’t has an idea! A delightful romp that explores individuality, strengths and weaknesses, determination, and discovering one’s unique talents.
