I've really enjoyed every book I've read in this series. The finger holes that allow you to create legs for each character are super fun and while my toddler isn't old enough to create the legs himself, he thinks it's hilarious to watch me do it and love to try to grab my fingers. The illustrations are cute and the text is a great length and has a good rhyme scheme.

The finger holes for I Can Play are so fun! There are a few other books in this series, but I love that this book talks about teamwork. This book is sure to occupy little ones for a long time as they use their fingers to be limbs for all of the people in the book! I also love that this book talks about all the wonderful things we can do with our bodies: jump, kick, run, etc!

Who Wrote I Can Play

author & illustrator
Betsy Snyder

Once upon a time, there was a little girl from Ohio who drew on sidewalks and dreamt of becoming a REAL artist someday. And she did! After lots of doodling (and erasing), some schooling, and a cool gig as a staff artist at American Greetings, that little girl (ME!) took a big leap to follow her dream of making children's books full-time. Today, my art can be found on everything from greeting cards, baby gifts, stickers, board games, fabric, wallpaper and books, of course! Since making my publishing debut in 2007, I have illustrated and/or authored over fifteen books, earning recognition from groups including the Society of Illustrators, the New York Times Book Review, Scholastic Parent & Child Magazine, and Parents' Choice. I still live in Ohio with my book-loving family, where I draw on sidewalks and encourage kids (and even grown-ups) to tell their stories and chase their dreams. (Bio via betsysnyder.com)
