Quick Book Review: I'm the Best

I'm the Best
by Lucy Cousins
Candlewick Press

Summary:  Taking a break from her popular Maisy character books, Cousins shares this very colorful story with childlike drawings and printing about Dog who thinks he is the best at everything.  This saddens his friends, who show Dog what they are the best at.  Dog realizes that everyone has different things that they are the best at, or does he?

Tips for use:  This story would make a fun addition to a storytime.  You could make a felt dog, ladybug, donkey, mole and goose to help tell the story.  Older preschoolers would appreciate the character lesson included.
