You Can Do It, Sam

Santa brought my son a bunch of new books including You Can Do It, Sam by Amy Hest.

It was a hit the moment we first cracked it open, reading if about five times that day – and three times in a row.

You Can Do It, Sam is about a little bear and his mom, who makes cakes for their neighbours on Plum Street.

On Saturday after the nap that didn’t happen, my son and I baked chocolate cupcakes.

And just like Sam, my guy waited impatiently for the chocolate goodness to bake, then waited until they cooled so we could ice them and decorate them with the dinosaur sprinkles we got from my aunt.

We then placed them on plates, put on name tags and, like Sam, delivered cupcakes to our friends on our street.

What a charming book! And how nice to deliver cupcakes to your neighbours - I'll bet they appreciated it.

That sounds like an adorable book. The fact that involves cupcakes is a bonus!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is the cutesy idea, what a fun mom your little guy has!
