Did you know there is a real life Can Do Duck Mascot that walks and talks?
In the picture above, he is visiting with children in South Carolina, through the Limos for Learning (TM) program.
Notice his red cape! It says Can Do!
While the children are learning to read, they are also learning to approach life with a Can Do attitude. Last year, cheerleaders at one of the schools could be heard cheering the Can Do Duck slogan, "We say we can. We make a plan. We get right to it. And then we do it!" Limos For Learning (TM) is really taking Can Do to new places in style!

Information on Limos for Learning
and how they use Can Do
The books have been used in schools in South Carolina through the Limos For Learning (TM) literacy program. This is a very innovative literacy program that is improving reading levels in many school districts. It is a unique non-profit program rewarding students for "outstanding improvement in reading skills." Its mission is "to encourage, recognize and reward deserving students who demonstrate exceptional effort toward becoming developmentally proficient in English/Language Arts."
Limos For Learning (TM) brings together a network of individual, community, statewide and national organizations and sponsors to promote literacy and improved reading skills among elementary grade children. Currently in South Carolina with plans to expand nationally, Limos For Learning (TM) has developed a unique and exciting reading incentive program.
"Your books are absolutely wonderful and are an answer to our prayers! You could not have written better books that incorporate every message we attempt to impart within our program had we commissioned you to pen them."
- Elizabeth "Betsy" Ross, Founder of the Limos for Learning (TM) literacy program. www.limosforlearning.org
