Written by the founder of Inclusive Minds in a direct collaboration with children and young people who were asked what they would say to their younger selves to inspire, reassure and enthuse them about the future.

The book follows 14 characters, introduced as babies on the opening endpapers, through to the young adults depicted on the closing pages. Each character is brought vividly to individual life by the beautiful, richly detailed illustrations of Steve Anthony and reflects a truly diverse range of different interests, identities and friendships and a clever and subtle use of colour allows the reader to track individuals through the pages as they grow and change.

Inspirational, aspirational, reassuring and hopeful, this important book will truly allow every child to feel seen, heard and respected. 

"A joyous ode to inclusion, realised in the most delightful, uplifting way."
Cerrie Burnell

"A masterclass in empowering young readers to believe in themselves."
Fiona Noble ― The Bookseller

“Based on real children’s own voices and messages, You Can is a fabulously inclusive picture book that reminds all children that they are valued individuals with a bright future. Steve Antony’s marvellous illustration is full of action and emotion.”
BookTrust Bookmark: Book of the Month

“Joyful from start to finish and bursting with the most wonderful illustrations. There is so much to discuss and explore! There is so much to notice - so many stories to tell. I shared the book with our Y6 children and they were completely captivated…The book ends with a lovely note about the young contributors with their pictures and a link to Inclusive Minds, co-founded by author, Alexandra Strick. A complete joy!”
North Somerset Teachers' Book Award Blog

“Hugely empowering and inspiring, this a book that needs to be in every home and classroom. Children and adults will love the gentle humour and playfulness in Steve’s illustrations: each spread deserves close study."
Red Reading Hub: Picture Book of the Day
