Martha Doesn't Share by Samantha Berger, Bruce Whatley

Martha has a new favourite word. And that word is 'MINE!' Martha has officially mastered apologizing. Unfortunately, she still has a lot to learn about sharing. And while I can't say she learns to love it, she does learn that having all the toys to yourself means you have to play all by yourself, too. Not so much fun! The good news is that readers learn the importance of sharing as they observe Martha's stubbornness, her (ultimate) regret and her decision to do the right thing. Martha isn't perfect but she's learning. And that's what matters most.
