Amy Krouse Rosenthal's books are some of my favorites and It's Not Fair! is no exception.
It's Not Fair! rolls through a list of complaints about perceived slights to more common gripes such as he got the bigger cookie to out and out silly ones like when the stool complains that the chair got an extra leg. Through it all your students will get the idea that fairness is a matter of perspective. Following a reading of the book, have students talk about times that are really unfair and how they handle them and move on. Guide students to gain the understanding that sometimes life is unfair and we have to find a way to deal with it and other times we are just complaining like when the pig, in the book, wants wings.
