A Book About Sharing
Small children have big feelings. The Our Emotions and Behavior series uses cheerful, vividly illustrated stories to help kids understand how their feelings and actions are related—and how they can get better at managing both. At the end of each book, a two-page series of pictures invites kids to tell a story in their own words. A special section for adults suggests discussion questions and ideas for guiding children to talk about their feelings.
Playing fairly doesn’t always come naturally to kids—and sharing isn’t always easy. Plus, the hurt feelings that happen when others won’t share can make matters even worse. Nora, Henry, and Dan find this out when Miss Clover builds a special space station in their classroom. Everyone wants to play at once! Can they figure out how to share?
Not Fair, Won’t Share shows that when kids get frustrated and mad, there are ways for them to calm down. Soon they see that playing fairly with other kids, and sharing with them, can make the day more fun for everyone.
The book also includes a series of pictures following the story, inviting kids to tell a story in their own words. A special section for adults presents positive coping skills for children and ideas for talking with kids about feeling reluctant to share—or feeling mad when someone else won’t share—and how to deal with those emotions. Ideal for home and K–3 classroom settings.
