I’m the Best!

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!

IMG_1729I know I’m the best at getting the Mom Person to do my bidding

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.

IMG_3759We recently read a really cute picture book called I’m the Best by Lucy Cousins. It was published in 2010 by Walker Books. (We like Walker books!)

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.

IMG_3761The 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

    • I have been known to accomplish some amazing breakthroughs. Though I don’t like to brag about it. It’s part of the job. And I’m sure a lot of dogs could do the same. We did have a fun discussion with the kids about bragging and being a show-off. And about being a good friend.

  1. Rhythm, you are definitely the best at a LOT of things. Such a good, well-behaved helper. That looks like a fun book. Maybe Mom will read it to me and I will learn not to be a show off….

    Love and licks,

    • Hahahaha! You are the BEST at being cute and funny. And you have the BEST wardrobe of any dog I know! I think you would like this book – it’s a good read aloud for the library. And you could show off your style while reading it!

  2. Boasting vs. a humble pride for accomplishments … tough subject to tackle! I’ll bet you do your BEST at a lot of stuff, Rhythm. Good news …I’m coming to McKinney ISD to do a one-day training for their counselors in February. Wonder if you’re very far away or if we could swing lunch!
