A las orillas del lago vive una familia de patos, la cual está formada por cinco miembros. Uno de ellos siempre quiere ser el primero. En estas páginas vemos como la mamá lleva a sus hijos a realizar distintas actividades. Los conduce a un estanque para pescar, luego llega la hora del baño y finalmente, es el momento de cenar. En todas estas ocasiones, el pequeño pato alza su alita y grita: "¡Yo primero, yo primero!". Sin embargo, hacia el final de la historia el protagonista recibirá una lección. Una encantador cuento con la cual se sentirán inmediatamente identificados.On the lakeshore lives a family of five ducks. One of them always wants to be first. In this book, we see how the mom take her children to do different activities. She takes them to a pond to fish, then to bath time, and then to dinner time. Each time, the duckling raises his wings and yells, "Me first, me first!" But by the end of the story, he'll have learned a valuable lesson.
