Are you having a hard time getting your kids to share? Sharing is a difficult topic for children, here are some books about sharing that helped my three boys learn how to share.
Daniel Tiger is a favorite in our house, he’s helped us teach many important topics. It’s one thing when mom and dad say something, but oohhh if it’s on Daniel Tiger, it must be right! At least that’s how my kids tend to think. I get it, I think we all listen to outside sources more than our parents at times.
There are Daniel Tiger episodes to go with these books as well. The episodes are great but having the books around I feel helps reinforce the idea since they can go back and look at the pictures and eventually read the book on their own.
Friends Ask First
This story takes place in Daniel’s school where he learns that friends should ask first before using something someone else was using.
Daniel Tiger Learns to Share
Daniel and his friends are at the park but not everyone brought their own car so they’re faced with a rough decision as to whether or not to share. Bonus: This book includes stickers!!
Llama Llama Time to Share
Llama Llama has books and a TV show as well. They’re great at helping kids learn lessons, including how to share. This one is about Llama Llama getting a new neighbor and needing to learn to share toys, having a difficulty deciding which ones he’s ok with sharing.
Be Fair and Share
This was the first sharing book we got our little guys. It’s a sweet story about Cubby, the lion, having a playdate with Monkey and Cubby not wanting to share his most special toys. Cubby’s dad helps him learn how to share and take turns.
This is still my favorite sharing book.
Peppa Pig has a TV show and many books as well, are you noticing a theme? Haha! Honestly, some aspects of Peppa Pig aren’t that great overall, such as they tend to make Daddy Pig seem like a horrible father and like he doesn’t know anything. The show and books do still help teach kids some good things as well though.
Learning to Share
This book is about Peppa and her friends at the park, learning to share. This book includes stickers!
Peppa Is Kind
Peppa is kind isn’t just about sharing but about being kind, similar to the book below about being kind. The book does define what kind means, which is nice as my kid was confused what kind meant and this book helped him. The book not only defines what kind is but different ways to be kind. This book comes with a poster that I laminated and we have on our wall to remind my kids to be kind.
ABCs of Kindness
I wasn’t thinking of including this book initially but one of my 3-1/2 year old twin boys told me this is a good one to include for sharing. It’s also great for overall kindness and the ABCs of course!
This is a really great read for right before bed, at least that’s when we tend to read it. A nice calming end to the day.
