horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

You Can Do It, Bert!
by Ole Konnecke
Age Range: Under_5
This is Bert’s big day. Bert has been planning for a long time and he is well prepared, both mentally and physically. But before he takes the plunge, he may just need a bit of encouragement from his friends. ‘ “You can do it Bert”, they cry’.
German author and illustration Ole Konnecke has created a simple, positive story. The sparse text and evocative cartoon-like pen-and-ink watercolour illustrations are set out on a cream background focusing the reader’s attention on Bert. This is an ideal picture book for children who are about to embark on their own new adventure. Other titles by Konnecke available in English include Anton Can Do Magic, Anton and the Battle and The Big Book of Words and Pictures.
