I would recommend this book for fun and casual reading for children to enjoy.The illustrations are large and have an intriguing style, however the colors are rather muted. The story could be used to help teach the concept of sharing, or to teach about the animals that are presented in it. The pictures of the animals are very clear and detailed. Over-all the story-line is rather poor and un-attention grabbing, which is why it earned a three star-rating.

Learning Experience:
For this book I would bring in small puppet representations of the characters from the story. We would take turns re-enacting this book with the puppets, letting each child get a turn. Using this dramatization the kids will learn of sharing through the book, as well as taking turns with the puppets.
