Share is a bright and bubbly picture book for infants. It stars a big sister and her baby brother going through a day of playing. Whatever the big sister wants to touch, the baby brother wants to have as well. Mummy wants her to share, which she does, but baby brother has a different way of using her things. So the sister changes tack and applies Mummy’s sharing mantra to get back at both baby brother and Mummy. But she learns that sharing certain things with her baby brother can be a good thing.

There are delightful pencil-sketched illustrations by Birkett and the friendly font means kids will be reading this over and over again. It’s also a neat way to discuss sharing among siblings. Share is a charming picture book that kids will want to share around. It’s recommended for ages 4 and up.
