The Boy Who Wouldn’t Share by Mike Reiss

SpellbinderWith a sing-songy “Grinch Who Stole Christmas” rhythm, this delightful book tells the story of Edward, the boy who would not share, not even with his cute little sister Claire! The pictures of the children in the book are priceless! The little girl is very much like Cindy Lou Who, and Edward begins the book as a “frightful boy who wouldn’t share a single toy”, and he looks it. The rhyme continues that “She could not hug his teddy bear. IT’S MINE! he said. Why should I share?” Edward ends up trapped inside a huge pile of his coveted toys, and no one notices him when there is fudge to be shared. Well, he must have had some time to think while inside the mound, because he emerges as a new boy who is most certainly sorry and now wanting to share.

No need for lectures about sharing with this book around. All you really need to do is to take a good look at the pictures to know that you do not want to become a selfish boy like Edward. With humor and rhyme, this book teaches lessons on sharing and maybe even teaches grown-ups that even though the day started one way, it can end in a much better way.
