When excitement turns into gloating and feelings are hurt Aphrodite, Hera and Athena are competing for Paris's candy apple. When Aphrodite offers Paris a toy horse, she wins the prize! Her excitement leads to bragging, which results in the hurt feelings of others. But when Aphrodite stops boasting and offers to share her snack instead, the three friends happily play together.Joan Holub's carefully crafted text is brought to life by Leslie Patricelli's famously humorous illustrations. Includes a summary of the original Aphrodite myth at the end. This book joins Be Patient, Pandora!, Play Nice, Hercules!, Brush Your Hair, Medusa!, Make a Wish, Midas! and Be Careful, Icarus! in the Mini Myths series of mythologically-inspired modern-day parables in board book form, each featuring a read-aloud summary of the Greek myth at the very end.
