What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Martha has officially mastered apologizing. Unfortunately, she still has a lot to work on when it comes to sharing. And while she doesn’t learn to love it, she does discover that having her toys to herself means having to play with them all by herself, too. Not so fun! This hilarious follow-up to Martha doesn’t say sorry! shows readers that sharing isn’t all that bad when you take it one (small) toy at a time—like Martha does. It gets easier every day. Well, almost every day.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0

Sharing is hard, but it turns out that it can be a lot more fun than having all of your own toys but nobody to play with and no audience, and Martha discovers. The facial expressions in the illustrations beautifully capture how much effort it can take for littles to share, which I love, along with the realism in that even once you’ve decided you want to share… it’s still a learning curve :)
