Dog likes to be the best at everything but his friends help him learn that being a good friend is more important than being the best. Theme - Friendship

This book brought tears to my eyes. The dog is over boastful and makes his friends feel bad every time dog says he is better than they are. Then the friends boast back and dog realizes how bad it feels to be put down. But the friends love him no matter what and that is what makes dog the best. I love the story's message as it is perfect for a young, learning, age group.
My only negative is that the illustrations are rather messy which makes it less pleasing to look at.
Would I recommend this book? YES. Especially for reading to younger children in group settings.

A very good good book that demonstrates one of the ways to be a good friend is understand everyone wants to be the best at something.
