Book Description

Benjy is so excited! He just found the best partner for his game- a brave teddy bear! The problem is, that this is his sister's teddy bear. When Justine, his older sister, finds out he took the bear without asking... well let's just say she doesn't stay quite about it.

What is Benjy going to do now? Can they go back to being friends again?

No it's mine! is the third book by the bestselling author Shimrit Nothman, writing about conflict management for kids.



This book has a twin book: "Give it back", which tells the story through Justine's eyes. And just like in life- these two stories sound nothing alike...

No, it's mine! is the third book in the series: Conflict management for kids.

This series of books focuses on common conflicts and arguments our children will likely encounter early on in their lives. Power struggles over choosing clothes, bedtime, and sibling rivalry are just some of the subjects discussed in this series, through an engaging story and colorful illustrations.

These stories can assist parents in addressing a particular argument, or in teaching the children various methods of conflict resolution, and all in a fun way.


Editorial Reviews

Review

*****  Conflict resolution sensitively illustrated in this fine book (Sep 15, 2013) 
                            -------------------------
By Grady Harp TOP 50 REVIEWER
                            -------------------------
Shimrit Nothman, with a BA in Psychology and Communication from Haifa University and a MA in Conflict Resolution form Tel Aviv University, has focused on her own history of fear of public speaking and stage fright by becoming an honored debater. She now writes and speaks widely about conflict resolution and here she demonstrates that depth of knowledge in a very well written book with excellent illustrations by Basra Owais.

Benny is an adventure-seeking lad who decides to play Kings and Dragons, hops on his toy horse and then realizes he needs a trusty knight to assist him. Lacking such a figure among his own toys he breaks a rule and goes to his sister's room, rummages through her toys, and Voila! There is a Sir Bear - his sister's teddy bear. Out to build castles and adventures his older sister Justine intervenes and demands he give back her teddy bear. Benjy is angry and sad, and in his despondency he chats with his toy blue car, admitting his sadness about Justine's anger about his ploy. The blue car suggests a reconciliation and with that sound advice Benjy's ball further suggests that he ask Justine to play together and his toy guitar suggests Benjy also make a gift for Justine to express his heartfelt regret at causing an argument. 
 
The book is charming, fun to read and act out, and gives children an immediate insight into how to avoid problems of sibling rivalry and instead become a happy household. Grady Harp, September 13

About the Author

Shimrit Nothman was always terrified of Public Speaking. Perhaps that's the reason that the first thing she did at university was to join the university's debating team. 

After completing her BA in Psychology and Communication at Haifa University, and concluding her role as the President of her University's Debating club, she joined the Debate Company. Shimrit lectured all around Israel, teaching children and adults from all walks of life how to overcome stage fright, and acquire effective communication tools.

Shimrit Nothman had perfected the art of Conflict Resolution at a very young age. Her method was: AVOID CONFLICTS AT ALL COST!

Later on in life, she decided that other methods may work better, and so she attended Tel Aviv University, where she received her Masters in Conflict Resolution. 

Shimrit lived in Australia for a few years before returning to her native Israel with her young family.

Today she writes conflict management children's and parenting books as well as a biweekly column at the JPost about conflict-resolution in the family, named Family Matters

Out to build castles and adventures his older sister Justine intervenes and demands he give back her teddy bear. Offering to return the bear after his adventures, Benjy becomes frightened when Justine threatens to take the case to their father to decide. Benjy is angry and sad, and in his despondency he chats with his toy blue car, admitting his sadness about Justine's anger about his ploy. The blue car suggests a reconciliation and with that sound advice Benjy's ball further suggests that he ask Justine to play together and his toy guitar suggests Benjy also make a gift for Justine to express his heartfelt regret at causing an argument. Benjy sleeps on the idea and the next morning, prepared to make amends with Justine, he instead finds his sister forgiving and simply requesting to borrow her toys when he wishes to play with them. And the two play with both their toys together.

The book is charming, fun to read and act out, and gives children an immediate insight into how to avoid problems of sibling rivalry and instead become a happy household. Grady Harp, September 13

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for ages 4 and up. March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a decent book, the message would be perfect for a child of 2 or 3, yet the story itself looses their attention as there are too many words. Any one who has regaled a child with stories at bedtime knows that the attention span of a toddler get exhausted with most things other than picture books. I am hoping that as my daughters grow a bit older, they will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Learning How To Share"........... October 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very sweet story to teach your child learning how to share with others..This author demonstrates a perfect depiction of not playing nice together and fighting over toys....Ideal story for "Conflict Resolution for Kids" for the developmental stage of 3-8 yrs old...The illustrations are bright, colorful and very cute, especially the talking toys..Those pictures made my niece laugh and she wished all her toys could talk to her..Hey, I wish I had to toys who could give such good advice....

My niece quickly engaged with the story because she doesn't like her brother to even enter her room...What does Benjy go and do..Go into sister Justine's room picking through her stuffed animals to play with..He didn't ask for permission...(That's always the beginning of not a good sign in our houshold or anyones)...How will Justine react when she finds her Teddy Bear in Benjy's hands...I don't know ? Will they start fighting or can Benjy's talking toys help him solve the problem...Will there be peace in the house......

My niece loves Justine and Benjy......

I agree that this book would be very helpful for teaching children about conflict resolution. There are few punctuation and typo issues, but for its target audience, this book is right on target to teach an important lesson.
