Mine! by Sue Heap


Mine! by Sue Heap

A very funny warm-hearted picture book about the difficulty of sharing. Amy snuggles on her blankie with her three toys. I love you all, she says, because we're together, and because you're MINE. When Jack and Zak want to play and they grab Bear and Bunny, Amy grabs them back. MINE! she says. When Baby Jo picks up Bird and kisses it, Amy takes it away. MINE! she says. But then she realizes that what she's done has made Baby Jo very sad. He's all alone, without a toy and suddenly Amy has a difficult decision to make. What will she do?
