Pig the Winner by Aaron Blabey - OPTIONAL

Blabey, Aaron Pig the Winner.  PICTURE BOOK.  Scholastic Press, 2017.  $15.

Pig the Pug is obsessed with winning.  He is neither a good loser, nor a good winner, instead he is a whining braggart.  Trevor tries really hard to be considerate, but even eating is a full body win-at-all-costs proposition for Pig.  When things go awry, maybe (?) Pig has learned a lesson?

There are certainly those kinds of kids in every classroom – kids that want to win at all costs.  This is not the book to help nudge them in the right direction.  Pig’s antics are mildly amusing, but its one of those books where the lesson learned is actually spoiled on the last page.  If you are a fan of pugs, you might enjoy it more.
