To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Fab book, bought to help my son understand that he doesn’t always have to be first. We found out about this book on YouTube and I searched everywhere for it and found it here. It arrived perfect and in the condition stated so very happy. The story itself is great and loved by all my kids
I was having some problems with children in my Reception class pushing to get to the front of the line all the time, when I remembered my daughter having this book some 15 years ago. I ordered the book and after reading the story to them a couple of times a quick reminder of 'remember Pinkerton?'is enough to get them all standing beautifully ready to go! This is an excellent story with a clear message for young children of what 'might' happen if they insist on always being first. Adding the voice of the 'sand witch' keeps them all entranced. A truly lovely book that I loved reading to my daughter and now enjoy reading to my class!
Meine Tochter hatte dieses Buch als 4 Jährige in Neuseeland kennengelenrt und wünschte es sich immer mal wieder - nun fand ich es auf Amazon. Es ist eine so rührende und weise Geschichte über den positiven Umgang mit schwierigen Eigenarten - nicht nur für Kinder!
The story is about a pig who always says me first. A witch comes and asks who cares for a sand witch, to which the pig replies he does and gets taken by the sand witch. ( He thought the offer was for food.) He is forced to clean for the witch and is then released. I'm not really sure what the book is trying to teach kids- if you say "me first" something bad will happen to you??? It should teach about empathy for others, which it does not. It only seems to imply that bad things might happen to you if you are selfish- which is totally not true.
I read this book as a child, and now that I am raising three crazy toddlers (ages 2, 4, and 5!), I knew this would be a good book for them to read to teach them about not being selfish. This is a fun book about a little pig who wants to be first for everything: first on the slide, first on the bus, first for lunch, etc. He soon learns that it is not always good to be selfish.
A great story for any age. My girls are always having me read it!
