A strikingly-illustrated book about learning to share from Jonny Lambert, creator of Little Why, The Only Lonely Panda and I Love You More and More.
Little Whale does NOT like to share. She wants to be the one to lead the pod and to eat all the delicious fish by herself. And she certainly doesn't want anyone to share her mum's attention. But when her friend Blue shares a snack, Little Whale is inspired to set out on a journey to find the beauty of sharing with one another.
This heartwarming and tender story is ideal for parents who want to teach their children the importance of sharing. Just like The Squirrels who Squabbled by Rachel Bright and Jim Field, Llama Llama Time to Share by Anna Dewdney and It's Mine! by Leo Lionni, Can You Share, Little Whale? is an insightful tale that celebrates the joy that comes from sharing.
What a beautifully illustrated book! Can You Share, Little Whale? is a simple story to share with such a lovely message. It's a story about a baby whale who loves her mummy very much and does not want to share her mum's love and attention with anyone, including her best friend. I read this book to a class of Year 1 children who loved it too. It's definitely a story I will use again in school to reinforce the importance of sharing and being kind to each other. The children were able to relate easily to it and talk in detail about what Little Whale should have done instead.
