School Library Journal - 12/01/2014 PreS-K—Amy has difficulty sharing her toys, especially when her twin brothers take them and toss them around. But when Baby Joe tries to play with one of Amy's stuffed animals, the twins shame her for taking it away from him. Amy realizes that her little brother has no toys and instead of telling him that Bird is hers, she announces that it is "YOURS AND MINE." Pleasing cartoon illustrations are large and soft, on plain white backgrounds. Text is minimal and printed in an easy-to-read font, which should be helpful for young readers. Other books about sharing present the concept in a richer context, such as Anna Dewdney's Llama, Llama Time to Share (Viking, 2012) or Jane Yolen's How Do Dinosaurs Play with Their Friends (Scholastic, 2006). While Mine! does an adequate job with the concept, the story is a little flat.—Mary Hazelton, formerly at Warren & Waldoboro Elementary Schools, ME - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
