Product description

Yes, I Can! is composed in verse and chronicles the experiences of the original team members who, with a strong belief in themselves and each other as well as a "can do" attitude, became the first to represent their island nation in the Winter Olympic Games, which were held in Calgary, Canada in 1988.The book is intended for children ranging in the ages of seven to twelve years. It will teach and reinforce to readers that, like the original Jamaican bobsled team, they too will achieve their dreams once they believe in themselves, work hard and persevere. The book focuses on following one’s own dreams, eliminating fear to pursue those dreams and embracing opportunities despite the inevitable obstacles they will face. It is anticipated that the powerful lessons this improbable yet true story espouses will not only inspire children to build a healthy and high self esteem but will also encourage them to pursue their dreams even in the face of insurmountable odds.
