    One thought on “The Big Brag”

    1. "The Big Brag" is just what the title says . a BIG brag.A rabbit believes that he is the best animal of all the animals because of his ears. A bear, on the other hand, believes he is the best of the beasts because of his nose.The rabbit shows the bear how he can hear a fly sneeze from 90 miles away, while the bear shows the rabbit how he can smell a stale egg from even further.Of course there is no way they can really show each other this. And that is where the old worm comes into the story. He [...]

    2. Got to love Dr. Seuss. Ok - it's not the law or anything - but you know what I am saying. This book pits a proud rabbit against a gruff bear. It's like listening to two men talk about Chevy Trucks VS Ford Trucks. It's awesome. And although I seriously doubt most children will be transformed from a mean Nelly Olson into a sweet Laura Ingles by reading this, I still think it's cute and worthy of a children's library. On a side note, this would be a great book to leave on a desk of a co-worker who [...]

    3. This book is about two animals bragging. The bear can smell better than the rabbit but the rabbit can hear further than the bear. A worm who is listening into the conversation overhears them both bragging and chimes in and says he can see better than them both. And what he can see is that they are both fools for not having anything else to do and then he goes back into his hole. The ending of this book shocks me because it is very rash and teaches children that bragging is what fool do instead o [...]

    4. Genre: Picture BookAge Level: Transitional; Grades 3 and upWorld View: Not specific for either race or class.Theme: Bragging and MaterialismLiterary Elements: AA BB rhyme scheme, with great dilogue throughout the book. In the Classroom: Kids would love this read aloud, everyone likes to brag, and write about a skill they are very good at. Illustrations: The cockiness of the rabbit and the bear are clear, as well as the worm's satirical irritation with the other two. some of the funniest fitting [...]

    5. I love this story! First there is a rabbit that brags he can hear better than anyone he supposedly hears a fly sneeze over 90 miles away then not to be outdone a bear says he can smell better than anyone he says he can smell a stale hummingbird egg over a thousand miles away. Then a worm pops up and says he can see better than anyone he sees all the way around the world and back and reports on seeing two conceited, and silly ones (rabbit & bear) that have are wasting their time tryng to [...]

    6. so cute! i love druss! :D one of my favorites from my childhood. a good little lesson for kids. it even has nice colorful little pictures. His animals are just the cutest. :D my fave line is at the ending "The fools that i saw were none other than you, who seem to have nothing else better to do than sit here and argue who's better than who!" story of my freakin' life. some people really don't have anything better to do than sit out their assess and talk themselves up, and it drives me nuts.

    7. This Dr Seuss book is (like most of his stories) told in rhyme; a rabbit and a bear both argue about who is best. Rabbit says it's him because he can hear the best and proves it. Bear says it's him because he can smell the best and proves it. But then as the argument comes to a head a worm pops up his head and proves them both wrong. My son and I giggled through this story.

    8. Just read this out loud to Rebekah last night. We both thought that it was silly and fun to read. I love Dr. Seuss books, even as the kids get older! I actually think that they are old enough now to really understand the intended statement. We had a nice conversation about bragging afterwards. Nice lead in to talk about character.

    9. My friend Kevin is reading a list of best children's books. I am following suite in order to discuss the books with him. By default, I give the books four-stars because they're good at what they're intended to do, which is to keep the attention of children and introduce them to literature.Weak, to say the least.

    10. A rabbit and a bear battle it out to see who is the supreme beast. The rabbit can hear far far away while the bear can smell far far away. What neither animal is prepared for is a worm who can see around the whole world!Great read aloud with vibrant illustrations (as in the color palette used in The Lorax).

    11. I would rate this book at either one and a half or two stars. Dr. Seuss lays out in perfect rhyming form (and without a single lecturing word) the pitfalls of unmitigated bragging, and just what can happen when one person deems it necessary to prove himself superior to others. This is a classic tale told by the master of such moral fables.

    12. The Big Brag. Another great story with a moral to it.Read this in "Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories." I'm reading or in this case rereading through two of the 100 best books lists. One from the Times and one from the Telegraph. Dr. Seuss time. I don't remember if I read this as a child or not, but now I have (again perhaps)

    13. Seekor kelinci dan seekor beruang saling menyombongkan kelebihan masing-masing.Lupa bahwa setiap mahluk mempunyai kelebihan dan kekurangan. Dongeng lucu untuk mengingatkan anak-anak dan orang dewasa juga. Saat merasa di puncak dunia, jaya; lupa bahwa orang lain memiliki keunggulan lain yang harus kita hormati.

    14. Teaches students about bragging and how they can be proud of their work, but that everyone and everyone's work is different and equally good but there is no need for bragging. I would use this as part of the introduction to writer's workshop.

    15. Fantastic book for kids! So imaginative and creative. Easy read that children will find delightful!Dr. Seuss is always brilliant! His stories and rhymes are fun and entertaining! Some of my all time favorites!! Such a great way to entertain children and get them interested in reading!

    16. This is a hilarious book that shows you just how far bragging gets you. I crack up laughing at the end when the worm puts the bear and rabbit in their place and basically tells them to stop wasting their time talking about who is better than who.

    17. Funny story stemming from The Tortoise and the Hare, where the bear and hare go at it about being better than one another. Great story to introduce modesty, acceptance, and respect for one another.

    18. This is such a cute book! I love all the Dr. Seuss books and this one is no exception. I think many children will enjoy it and it's colorful illustrations.

    19. I did love this little Dr. Seuss fable. The moral is clear, the story is funny, and the illustrations are perfection.

    20. As always Dr. Seuss had me tongue tied and laughing. Teaches a lesson too! I liked this very quick book. A cute little battle of wits between a bear, rabbit and a little worm!

    21. Fun to read to a child. You have to sound like a bear, a rabbit and a worm which are the characters of the story.
