One day a family of ducks goes out to have some fun. Among them, is one brother that is more eager than the rest though. For each activity he brazenly shouts "me first!" and dashes off. This over-eagerness is accompanied by looks of incredulity, surprise, or disapproval from his siblings and mother, who just happen to be in the path of his bursts of flight.
The other ducks are clearly unable to enjoy the day as much when their toys are stolen, or their brother acts rude, something which this little duck neglects to notice. At the end of the day he runs off one final time and on the final page finds himself learning a lesson he will never forget; being first isn't always for the best.
Both the simple text and pictures prefer to let the subject matter speak for itself, and while it seems silly on the surface it is a much more serious tale than that, and cautions against eagerness. More sympathy is actually felt for the family than this troublesome child though. It is they that have to deal with him, and while he certainly learned not to rush off in the end, there is no guarantee he learned to show respect towards others.
