Peter's Chair

by Ezra Jack Keats

Little Peter is upset because it seems like the new baby sister is getting all of his stuff. He is VERY unhappy when he sees that his old craddle and high chair (once blue) were now pink. In hopes of saving his little chair from being painted pink, Peter decides to run away, with his chair, of course. Realizing that he was too big to even sit in the chair because he could sit in a big boy chair, Peter decides to return home and even suggests that he help paint the little chair pink for his baby sister. This is a great story about some of the adjustments that kids have to make when they have a new baby brother or sister! I used it with my kids to talk about sharing.
