Father/Daughter 'Can Do Duck' Book Creators Hit The Big Stage
You may remember our story about Dr. Morton Sosland, a child psychiatrist who created inspirational children's book series, 'The Can Do Duck' (original video below.) With the help of his wife and daughters, 'Ducktor Morty' created these motivational books to help build self-esteem, confidence and positive attitude. His daughter, Arielle Sosland, learned at an early age that she could do anything she put her mind to, so she did...
The senior at New York University went on to create and direct a musical based on the books- Can Do Duck: The Musical. The show is a huge hit and was picked up by The New York Times, "President Obama might be interested to learn that he’s not the only one to win big with a “Yes, we can” philosophy. A comparable mantra is helping a little duck in the East Village, though he’s not running for office — at least not yet." The musical is funny and quirky while leading with the confidence building mantra of the book series. Every family, parent, child, person who needs some encouragement should see this show.
