Octavia Can Do It!
Liliana Tommasini
Octavia is a spunky little girl who loves to bake cookies with her Mama. Mixing flour, butter and eggs are one of her favourite things to do. Today, Octavia wants to do things differently.

When Mama steps out of the kitchen, Octavia takes over with an “I can do it” attitude. But as flour and cocoa cover the walls, cabinets, and countertop, she starts to question herself.

Will her cookies turn out as good as Mama’s cookies?

Octavia Can Do It! is the humorous story of a young girl as she discovers that even the most independent people need a little help sometimes.

I was inspired to write 'Octavia Can Do It!' baking with my granddaughter, Octavia. She wanted to do everything by herself. "I can do it" is a constant phrase in her vocabulary.

The "Octavia's Double Chocolate Recipe" is included at the end of the book. Baking together with children is a fun STEM activity. Children learn the steps of baking, and how to measure and mix ingredients. It's also a great opportunity for families and friends to spend time together. Bake the cookies with your little ones, take a photo and tag me on Instagram to have your photo featured on one of my posts.
