Martha doesn't share!

By Samantha Berger (Hardcover Book, 2010)
Martha has a new favorite word.
And that word is MINE!


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.

Samantha Berger will happily share her puppets and lava lamp, but she she loves sharing her children's books most of all. She is the author of Martha Doesn't Say Sorry, Martha Doesn't Share, and Crankenstein. She now lives in New York where Samantha and her dog Polly Pocket share a home, love for the Golden Girls, and pancakes every Sunday.

Bruce Whatley has always shared. When he was young, he shared the measles and the mumps with all his friends. He is also happy to share the blame for his messy studio...but nobody wants to share that with him. Bruce shares his life in Australia with his wife, Rosie, and their two grown-up children, Ben and Ellyn.
  • Praise for Martha Doesn't Say Sorry:
    -A 2009 Parents' Choice Approved book

    -Hit the Indie Summer Next List (2009)

    * "Youngsters will recognize Martha's struggle, and they'll appreciate this additional perspective on the fact that..."sorry" can be the hardest word." --The Bulletin (starred review)

    "The watercolor-and-colored-pencil artwork encapsulates Martha's girliness, her better-than-thou attitude and her internal struggle with her conscience. Whatley's representation of body language and facial expression powerfully complement the text. An enjoyable introduction to what could be a new beloved character." --Kirkus

    "Should elicit giggles. Berger is a sly, sharp writer who clearly understands just how much is at stake for her heroine, which should make the message go down easy with readers." --Publishers Weekly

    "Martha is a delight to follow through her learning experience." --Children's Literature
