Description

A classic early reader that's simple and funny--while also exploring the perennial childhood issue of competition

Whose is the best? Two boys. Two balloons. Each boy thinks his balloon is the best. What do you think?

Mine's the Best is a My First I Can Read, which means it's perfect for shared reading with a child. It "sparkles with the kind of obvious humor and sight gags that young children love."*

Mine's the Best was written by Crosby Bonsall, who was one of the very first I Can Read authors. "Her characters are real children--children who interact with humor and charm, but also with a certain amount of temper, rivalry, and frustration so commonly found at the preschool age."*
