PreS-Gr 2–The author and illustrator of People Don’t Bite People team up again to cheerfully explain to youngsters why it’s a good idea to share. “People share with people. There’s no need to fight! What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine, but we can be polite.” Examples of items to share include crayons, toys, cupcakes, and balls. Also listed are a few things that should never be shared: a hat, a cup, and a sneeze. “Please” and “Thank you” come into play along with the idea of asking someone to share something and then being patient. Children in a variety of hues all feature large oval eyes and roly-poly physiques. Bright, primary colors and illustrations in various sizes add to the engaging poem. The rhyme scheme scans well, creating an enjoyable read-aloud for a story time or one on one.
VERDICT This engaging title should be ‘shared’ with siblings as well as children who are in a group setting and would do well to learn sharing skills and etiquette.
