Two Can Toucan Reviews
Poor old ‘Two Can’; a bird that starts out without a name and is completely black compared to the wonderful colours of those living things around him in the jungle. Being the odd one out he is laughed at which makes him unhappy and prompts him to leave the jungle to seek his fortune.He travels afar and ends up in the city, where he tries his hands at various professions. He finds he is a great carrier of ‘things’ and because of his long beak he is able to carry two cans of paint at once. His other feathered friends call him ‘Two Can’ as they could only carry one!Was it a mistake that one day he decides to carry three paint pots of the familiar Toucan colours of orange red and white? As you may well guess this colourless little fellow ends up in the familiar shades we are all used to. Upon arriving back in the Jungle and not recognised by the others, they ask his name of which he tells them ‘Two Can’. They, of course, spell it T-O-U-C-A-N.This book; a modern fable, is ideal as a read aloud book for EYFS with wonderful illustrations and a great story line.
Also found this one in the shelves of the training center. It was fun to stumbe upon such treasures at the least expected place. Children's literature is a treasure. One fun, cute little book. Wonderful to read to your kids as they grow.
Toucan is not a loser, he is brave and get a good experience.
Delightful! A super story with lots to talk about and fabulous illustrations with even more to talk about. My SBT1 class was called Toucans. I wish I had known this then...
