Me First by Helen Lester, Lynn Munsinger

Being first isn't always best, as Pinkerton Pig finds out after an encounter with a mean Sand Witch. As always, Helen Lester's wonderfully offbeat humor and Lynn Munsinger's whimsical illustrations result in a hilarious lesson about piggishness. The picture book duo of Lester and Munsinger has created six previous books, including the award-winning TACKY THE PENGUIN.

My daughter (now 19 & she still has her childhood copy) had me read her this book every night and now my 5 year old niece loves it too. Fun!

A plump pink pig hustles to be first in line, first to eat and first to get more than he bargained for.

Me First, by Helen Lester, is a hilarious story of a pig that always wants to be first. During the course of this story, however, Pinkerton the pig learns that being first sometimes comes with a high price. Lester uses language in a fun way that even children as young as five understand as a "play on words." I would highly recommend this as a classroom tool to illustrate the pitfalls of always needing to be first and the effects it can have on yourself and those around you.

Every one of my kindergarten students listened attentively to this story. The dialogue has a natural tone that makes the characters come alive. What a great way to reinforce the need to share and take turns.

I was a grammar school librarian and every year our Principal read this book to the 1st grade class. They loved it and didn't realize they were learning also. I recommendfed this book to all of the other librarians.
