It starts out harmlessly enough, with a rabbit feeling rather pleased with
himself and his talent for hearing. A neighboring bear overhears the rabbit's
boasting and takes offense. The challenge is on, and the bickering begins as
the bear proclaims that his ability to smell is quite superior to the rabbit's
hearing. It's up to a wise earthworm to point out the winner--neither! A great
Seuss classic to give as a gift, with a story and a moral for our times.

Great book

Review: The Big Brag

User Review  - Lisa Yi - Goodreads

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. Read full review
