Let's face it—sharing can be hard. Children's literature is very effective for sharing and teaching important lessons with children, and sharing is no exception. As kids see characters in stories work through situations where sharing is required, they'll be better able to develop this important skill. Here, we've compiled a list of the best kids books about sharing. The children's books on this list cover situations where a variety of sharing is required, whether it's sharing with a sibling, sharing food, or taking turns with a favorite toy. Some of the stories also relate to developing friendship through sharing, showing kindness, and helping others. The list includes three types of children's books: board books, picture books, and chapter books. You can filter the list for each type or view the full list. Board books are great for new babies and toddlers. They have thicker pages that can't be torn and are easier for small hands to turn. Picture books are fun to read aloud with toddlers and elementary age kids. Kids and adults can learn from the messages they contain about sharing. Chapter books are best for elementary and early middle school age kids and can also be fun to read aloud together over a number of reading moments. You can use our table of contents to jump to specific topics about sharing, like sharing and friendship, or enjoy browsing the full list. Let us know what you would add to the list!
