Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
I Can Fly by Ruth Krauss, illus. by Mary Blair, first published in 1951, features another solitary child in imaginary play, but the tone here is sillier. A rhyming text boasts that the girl can do anything that a variety of animals can do; for example, as she eats celery: "Crunch crunch crunch/ I'm a goat out to lunch." The artwork contrasts her antics with the animals she imitates in flatly patterned, stylized shapes that owe much to 1950s-era animation. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A classic Golden Book from the Bank Street Collection, first published in 1951, is back, in a slightly oversize format to delight young readers with its view of all the things a little girl can do just like animals. A cow can moo. "I can too. I can squirm/like a worm. I can grab/like a crab." The cheerful paintings reflect the decade or their origin with smiling animals, fanciful backgrounds, patterned wallpaper, a girl in a series of dresses, and stylized flora. Snappy, patterned text invites young listeners to chime in and no doubt some families will chant such couplets as "Pitter pitter pat/I can walk like a cat" as they sneak up to bed so as not to wake the baby. The lame ending, "Gubble gubble gubble/I'm a mubble in a pubble/I can play/I'm anything that's anything./ That's MY way," is a letdown after the charming text, but children may appreciate the silliness over the stodgy text and the stumbling and flopping rhythm. 2003 (orig. 1951), Golden Books, Ages 2 to 5.
— Susan Hepler, Ph.D.

    self awareness

    I used this with a three-year old. Before we even started reading, I asked him what he could do and I wrote his answers on chart paper. We discussed the title...Could she really fly? Why is she saying she can? We read the story and then reread it discussing how she could be all that she said. SHE IMAGINED!!! We then went back to his list and added all that he could do by imagining and that was ALOT. The list will remain on his door so new imagination experiences can be added. Society and schools (I'm a retired first grade teacher) are pushing academics on our little ones much too soon. They are forgetting that the best way a child learns is through play and allowing his imagination to grow.

    What a Let Down!

    While this is a charming little story, it is a half-hearted attempt to 'recreate' the original classic version of which this book is trying to imitate. I can only assume that in the interest of saving money the company has chosen to leave out a significant portion of the book from its original classic version. How disappointing to buy this to share with your child only to find out that it is no longer the same.

    A book that stays with you a lifetime

    I learned to read from this book and have never forgot it. I can remember at age 4 or 5 reading this. Or as my mother said I memorized it, from hearing it read to me so many times. LOL I have fondly thought of it many times over the years, thinking... 'a bird can fly, so can I. A cow can moo, I can too.' I always remember those few lines and have yearned to find the book. A few years ago I started looking for it and recently found it here in a search. I will be purchasing it now at age 41. It just brings me a good feeling that I've never lost. A book every child should have.
