Sometimes it’s fun to share, and sometimes it’s hard. This book offers toddlers simple choices (take turns, use the toy together, wait for another time) to make sharing easier, and shows them where to turn for help when sharing is difficult. Little ones learn that sharing can mean double the fun—and sharing a while can make someone smile! Includes tips for parents and caregivers.

“It’s important for children to understand they can’t take something away from another person without permission. It’s important they understand they have the right to say no when asked to share but can offer up a compromise for later. This book is a great way to lay that foundation.”
