That’s (Not) Mine

That's (Not) Mine

Written by AnnaKang
Illustrated by Christopher Weyant
This is a simple book that depicts the whole “that’s mine!” mentality so spot-on. You can’t help but smile as the two creatures fight for possession of a chair. You’ve either been there, done that, or have witnessed such a dilemma.

The illustrations are simplistic too, creating three cuddly characters, and colorful, inviting scenes.  The emotions of anger, smugness, bewilderment, fright, stubbornness, and joy are well-depicted as the two main characters navigate the worlds of assertiveness, trickery, and friendship.

An enjoyable fast-paced read that opens the door for a discussion about sharing.
