Six boys and girls find out how sharing can make friends, brighten up a day, and more in this feel-good book, illustrated by artist Miki Sakamoto. Children can open flaps and follow along as the boys and girls see how situations such as sharing cookies, crayons, and a ride on a swing, can brighten a day. The story also shows how sharing makes building a sandcastle twice as much fun, and how it can avoid fights, and make tears disappear. A wonderful pop-up at the end embodies the focus of the whole story and will delight both young and old alike.
Everybody could use a lesson in sharing these days. This brightly illustrated storybook really engages young readers and teaches them the joyfulness of sharing. The last spread of the book features a charming pop-up circular paper doll chain.
