Me! Me! MINE! by Alan Katz-ADVISABLE

Katz, Alan.  Lemaitre, Pascal. Me! Me! Mine! 16 pgs.  Little Simon, 2011.  Board Book.  $7.99.  Back cover: “Can’t you see?  This ball’s for me, ‘cause I don’t care, I just won’t share!  Rocky Dachshund just won’t share!  On the playground he hogs the swings. He never passes the basketball during games, and in art class he wants all the crayons and markers.  Young readers are sure to giggle as this “me, mine” barker learns the importance of sharing in this humorous first experience story.”  Fabulous illustrations and creative rhyming make this book a must for all teachers to share with their students.  We loved the solution Rocky’s mother used to solve this dilemma!  Even though it is a board book, it definitely has application to the classroom.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer:  SL.
