I Can Climb talks about the apprehension of taking a new step or trying something new. But once that step is taken, the pleasant feeling of having conquered a big milestone makes all the earlier feelings of fear and stress fade away. Here in this book, a little boy has already learned to climb up - on a chair, on a table, on stairs but he is not able to climb down. One day he musters all his courage, he is afraid but tries not to cry. He slowly takes one step down at a time and in no time, he learns a new thing - climbing down.
