My Mom Person is always telling me that I am the Very Best Girl That Ever Was. And I have to believe her because she always knows Best!
Like wear a special “calm-down” vest or pick up and hold objects like a ball.
I may be the best at some things. But I know that I am not the best at a lot of other things.
This is the story of Dog who thinks he’s the Best of everything. He says his friends are brilliant, but he’s the best. We see him compete with his friends in various competitions like running and digging and swimming and being big. He brags about being the best at everything. It makes his friends sad. But they figure out a way to teach him a lesson.
The illustrations and the words are all BIG and BOLD and I like that. The kids really liked this book. It was easy to read. It was funny. And it had a good lesson. Don’t be a show-off!!! Be a GOOD friend! Root for your friends and stand up for them. Be proud of their accomplishments. Good friends are a good thing. See what good things you can learn from a picture book?! They’re the Best!!
Ms Cousins is quite famous for her Maisy books. You’ve probably heard of those. Maisy has her own website for kids and teachers. You can check it out HERE. To see an interview with Ms Cousins click HERE.
Here’s a little song performed by 2 very good friends, Lucy (Ball, not Cousins!) and Ethel —
I hope that you have your Best Day ever! And be the Best that you can be!
Your Best Friend
