Good, general look at sharing and taking turns. Ideal as conversation starter, even if it doesn't suit your specific needs

It's always difficult to review books like this as everyone has their own needs and one book can't meet them all. As a general look at sharing and taking turns, this book is fine. It tells you all the things you would want to teach your child (or gives support for things you have already taught). It explains different ways of sharing and how to put it into practice. It also touches on the fact that it's ok not to want to share sometimes. The format of the book is almost bullet-point like (but without the bullets). There is no coherent story; I knew what to expect before buying. If you're looking at a broad way to teach your child about sharing, this is a good book as it gives quite a few examples, some of which I didn't consider (like 'sharing' your time when you help someone to do something). For something more specific to you, it's a good starting point for conversation. I tend to draw on my son's experiences and incorporate them into what has been written and it works well for us.
