New Bilingual editions for 'Of Course You Can!'

"Outstanding... Illustrations are clear and well matched.... I would recommend this book at all levels." - NZ Booklovers Review

Selected as a 2021 IBBY Outstanding Book for Young People With Disabilities. Of Course You Can! was first released in Māori and English in 2018. We have just released three more bilingual editions, Samoan and English, Tongan and English, Niuean and English.

In Of Course You Can! Jeremy is starting a new school. He is a bit nervous and a lot worried, but the children in this class are welcoming. Every time he thinks he can't take part they say 'Of course you can!' and so he plays soccer, joins in the Kapa Haka and even takes part in the cross country ... But when it comes to swimming the children aren't so sure. Can Jeremy tell himself 'of course you can!'?
