You Go First by Mercer Mayer


You Go First by Mercer Mayer

The first book in the new Inspired Kids line featuring the famous Little Critter! Since 1975, Mercer Mayer has been writing and illustrating stories about Little Critter(R) and the antics he stumbles into while growing up. Thomas Nelson is thrilled to bring this beloved brand to the Christian market with the launch of Inspired Kids, a new line of faith-based books featuring Little Critter. In You Go First, Litter Critter loves being first-even if it hurts his family and friends. After several missteps, Little Critter learns that the secret to getting along is treating others the way he wants to be treated-which, in Little Critter's case, means letting someone else be first.
