As our children grow there are plenty of lessons we as parents want them to learn. Some we are able to teach them, while other they have to learn through experience. But either way we can can help reinforce those lessons through talking, activities and even reading.
The Baby’s Brilliant Read Along book series was created to provide parents with another useful tool to enrich their young children’s lives and to help educate them in a fun and meaningful way. Today we are excited to introduce the second book in the series, “There’s Is Nothing Like Sharing”, written with the purpose of helping young children learn one of life’s most important lessons, sharing.

Jack can hardly wait for a new day to begin so he can head to the park and play with his new toy. When the day finally dawns, he is ready to go! Jack and his mom head down the street to the park where Jack hopes to spend the entire day with his beloved new toy. Soon though another boy comes over and wants to play. Jack, like all young children have done at one point in time, quickly grabs his fire truck and says “Mine”! As time passes by, and Jack continues to play alone, he soon starts to notice how much fun the other children are having. Laughing and playing and…sharing their toys!
