am is always NUMBER ONE when he races his car. He's the fastest driving and taking corners so be never loses a race. That is he never loses a race until the day his friend Maggie beats him!
h dear, Sam doesn't taking losing well. The next time Sam and Maggie meet, Sam is determined to regain his NUMBER ONE position. In fact, Sam is way out in front and about to reclaim that coveted TOP SPOT when something quite unexpected happens.
Sam slammed on his brakes!
ou may wonder now why would he do that? Well, my lips are sealed! Yes Sam came in last but it was worth it. When you read this cute picture book you'll discover that sometimes there are more important things in life than taking FIRST PLACE!
nd, as far as all his friends are concerned Sam is definitely NUMBER ONE!
ou'll love this picture book and the lesson it teaches. Sometimes we get a little carried away with always having to win or be number one! Greg Pizzoli points this out and suggests that other things are more important.
