Thomas Nelson Sharing With You

Sharing is not Bunny's favorite thing to do. Actually he doesn't mind sharing things he doesn't care about, like pinecones and buttons. But, will Bunny learn to share his most favored possessions with Little Mouse?

Children everywhere struggle with sharing. In this sweet, life-shaping story, Bunny struggles with a "mine" attitude. Then Bunny remembers that all we have comes from God and He wants us to share with others. Once Bunny takes the hard step of sharing something important to him with Little Mouse, Bunny finds that sharing can be fun!

This book begins by quoting Hebrews 13:16 ("Do not forget to do good to others. And share with them what you have. These are sacrifices that please God.") and does a nice job illustrating the positive effects of sharing.As the book opens, I Believe Bunny is playing with his friends. They make daisy chains, swing on vines, make pine cone castles...Then Mouse spots some shiny rocks. "Bunny looked at the rocks. He didn't know what to do. He knew his friends liked them, but he liked them too. These rocks were his favorites. They gleamed in the sun. He thought, 'I don't want to share these rocks with anyone.'"But before he can express himself to his friends, Magpie flies off with one of the rocks in her beak. Squirrel negotiates with Magpie by offering her a shiny ring she found months back. Bunny is moved that Squirrel would give up the ring, but Squirrel says, "You're my friend...And...you mean more to me than a bright, shiny ring."With the treasure restored, a thankful Bunny shares all his rocks with his friends. After all, sharing is something God wants us to do. "So give it a try and/you'll find when you do,/like the I Believe Bunny/you can share too."What I Like: Author Tish Rabe's writing skills shine. She writes rhyming verse the way it should be: Without forced rhyme and with terrific meter. The story seems to flow effortlessly from her pen. I especially appreciate it when Bunny admits he doesn't want to share his rocks with anyone; who hasn't felt this way, especially as a child? Yet, in the end, Bunny shares anyway.Frank Endersby's illustrations depict tender, sweet creatures young children will delight in. His soft renderings help us relate to the characters and want to give them a good squeeze.What I Dislike: Nothing.Overall Rating: Excellent.Kristina Seleshanko, Managing EditorChristian Children's Book Review
