I thought this book might be teaching a good "don't brag" lesson when the animals started teaching Dog that it wasn't nice to brag about being the best. But then in the end he reiterates that his ears are fluffiest and that is most important so he is the best. ??
Oh, I quite liked this one. I'm considering it for a feelings-themed storytime because it's a light, fluffy read that touches on guilt and shame, which I think aren't included in a lot of feelings-themed picture books but are definitely emotions that can frustrate and confound kids.
Boastful dog turns off his friends by claiming he is the best at...everything! They feel sad until they affirm their abilities. I have to say, the page where dog is crying because everyone has smacked him down esteem-wise (as he has done to them) is slightly heartbreaking. All's well that ends with
The conceit (pun intended) of this picture book is successful, but the execution is a bit clunky. Lucy Cousins' illustrations in bright, vivid colors fly off the page, making for a fun romp through a simple but important message. Dog's comeuppances are well-deserved and amusing. The book's final pag Leggi tutto
I love Lucy Cousins and I love this concept. We spend most of our lives telling our kids "You're great! You're perfect just the way you are! You're the best!" These things are great, until they run into other kids who have been told the same thing. I'm all for encouraging and praising your kids, esp Leggi tutto
This book missed the mark for me. I thought the story's message would be about appreciating our differences and being kind, a great lesson for children to learn through the character of Dog, except that by the end, the book ends where it began, with a boastful and obnoxious main character who treats Leggi tutto
Over confident dog gets his comeuppance after bragging to all his friends. They all put him in his place and then shower him with love to pull him up from the dregs where they pushed him in the first place. On the bright side, the artwork is great!
Dog thinks he is the best. He can do things better than his friends. But turns out, his friends can do some things better than him. He is sad, then they show him he really is the best at some things. Dog is silly but cute.
The dog is not a great friend, and he doesn't actually learn his lesson about not being so full of himself. He just decides that the thing he is actually good at (which isn't even a talent, it's just a trait he was born with), is the most important quality of all and so he is, in fact, still "better Leggi tutto
The best part of this book is the illustrations. It started with great message - everyone is good at different things. But the ending was just awkward and brought us back to where we started - with Dog thinking he's the best because he has something better than everyone else. It just left me feeling Leggi tutto
