Sharing can seem difficult and a bit unfair, especially with a younger baby brother wanting to pull away your toys. “Share” says mummy in the story to the little girl aged about 4 or 5. So she does, and so lots of toys and special books get sticky and soggy with a young baby wanting to play with them. Not surprisingly, older sister gets fed up and begins to ‘share’ things like a drink of milk in an open cup and a paint brush with her little brother on purpose, so he gets sticky and soggy and messy too. In the end they share a lovely bubbly bath together and share a cuddle in bed with mum.
The book is told from the child's point of view. A lovely ending with older sister and younger baby brother snuggling in bed together and sharing their mummy with a hug altogether.
This book helps parents to understand that maybe it is not always fair to ask an older sibling to share with a younger and to see from their older child's point of view why they might get fed up with constantly being told to share.
