Hip is a wise and cool hippo, and Hop is his excitable bird friend. In You Can Do Anything! Hip raps inspirational, positive messages that help Hop overcome the frustrations of learning to ride a bike:
“You can do anything if you try.
You can do anything, ride or fly!
Don’t let anyone tell you no.
Focus on your dreams and go!”
Part prose, part rap, You Can Do Anything! is packed full of rhyme, rhythm, and color, making it the perfect book to share, read – and sing – to young children.
Author Akala is a MOBO and BAFTA award-winning hip hop artist and founder of the UK’s Hip Hop Shakespeare Company.
