This book was about a little African American girl who was timid and reluctant to share anything at meeting time in her class. Each time she thought about something to hare, someone else had that idea and did. She finally thought of taking something that no else had; her dad.
It was an awesome moment for her and her dad enjoyed it too. Her classmates had fun and were all excited about Mary Jo's sharing. In the end she was happy and felt good about finally sharing.
This book can be used to teach children about self-acceptance, motivation, and encouragement. I liked the illustrations too as they were simple yet captivating.
