Not Fair, Won’t Share
A book about sharing
Sue Graves and illustrated by Desideria Guicciardini 
Not Fair, Won’t Share

Playing fairly doesn’t always come naturally to kids—and sharing isn’t always easy. Plus, the hurt feelings that happen when others won’t share can make matters even worse. Nora, Henry, and Dan find this out when Miss Clover builds a special space station in their classroom. Everyone wants to play at once! Can they figure out how to share?

This engaging title in the series of Our Emotions and Behavior books from Free Spirit shows that when kids get frustrated and mad, there are ways for them to calm down. Soon they see that playing fairly with other kids, and sharing with them, can make the day more fun for everyone.

Near the end of this humorous child behavior book, a series of pictures invites kids to tell a story in their own words. A special section for adults presents positive coping skills for children and ideas for talking with kids about feeling reluctant to share—or feeling mad when someone else won’t share—and how to deal with those emotions. Ideal for home and K–3 classroom settings.

“Colorful cartoon drawings portray the full representation of hurting and healing.”—School Library Journal

“Exuberant color illustrations bring to life simple stories about ordinary children interacting with their friends at school or at play. . . .The Our Emotions and Behavior series is enthusiastically recommended for parents as well as school and library children’s collections.”—Midwest Book Review

“The books would be helpful for teaching children [the concepts of rules, sharing, fears, and sadness] as well as beginning a dialogue with children about them. Teachers and school counselors will want to consider adding these to their library as they will undoubtedly be a good resource in classrooms.”—Chris Singer,

“Titles in the series capture the big emotions that all kids feel. The stories are perfect for young readers.”
