I Believe I Can

I Believe I Can is written by Grace Byers and illustrated by Keturah A. Bobo. I added this book to our classroom to increase my diverse books collection. The story is filled with positive affirmations guiding readers to believe in themselves. What I found interesting was my students responses after hearing the book and each other’s reactions.

Look at how many ways you can say believe in yourself from second grade thinkers.

  • Never give up keep trying.
  • Keep trying.
  • Don’t give up.
  • The author wrote the book to tell everyone to not give up.
  • The main thing about this book is to believe in yourself.
  • Giving yourself trust and trying harder.
  • To believe in yourself.
  • Don’t pout about what you can’t do.
  • Be happy even if you make a mistake.
