In this hilariously instructive follow-up to Lisa Wheeler and Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator Molly Idle’s People Don’t Bite People, this cheeky and charming picture book reminds little ones that sharing is caring. Learning good behavior has never been so fun!

It’s good to share a blanket.
It’s nice to share some fries.
It’s great to share your crayons
BEFORE somebody cries.

People share with people!
It’s not that hard to do.
So if you’d like to cozy up…
I’ll SHARE this book with you!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

Oh, gosh. This book is so adorable! I love the rhymes, the pictures, and the message. What a wonderful book about sharing!

I love the fact that nothing is pushed on anyone. It's about choice, and how we can choose to share with others because we are kind. (It's also great in that it mentions things we shouldn't share, like toothbrushes and sneezes!)

This would be a great book for children who are struggling with sibling rivalry. It's subtle enough to be effective, but has a strong message that's appropriate for any age. (A lot of adults could probably benefit from this book, too!)

Quotable moment:

Premise: 5/5

Overall: 4.71 out of 5
