Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Munsch and Martchenko (previously paired for The Paper Bag Princess and Alligator Baby) offer a snippet of a story about two squabbling kindergartners who have trouble sharing. When Amanda won't give Jeremiah the book she's looking at, he announces he will "yell and scream"; when he makes good on his threat, she stuffs the book in his mouth. When Jeremiah later refuses to surrender his building blocks to Amanda, she kicks over the elaborate Eiffel TowerAlike structure he has constructed. Martchenko's watercolors serve up exaggerated images that sometimes mimic an animated cartoon. The teacher, for example, is pictured surrounded by doves, flowers and butterflies as she flaps her arms and repeatedly gushes, "In kindergarten we share. We share everything." The kid-geared slapstick will invite snickers, but beyond those few giggles, this is forgettable fare. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 "In kindergarten we share. We share everything" gushes a smiling teacher surrounded by birds, flowers, confetti, and lofty ideals. Amanda and Jeremiah are new to this sharing idea and don't much care for it. Jeremiah tries yelling to get a book from Amanda while she tries kicking him to get some blocks; neither attempt works. After each unsuccessful encounter, the teacher coos "we share everything." When the two children get smattered with paint during another struggle, they are again told to share. They decide to trade clothes, and Jeremiah is quite pleased with Amanda's pink shirt and pants. But when teacher notices, she yells "Who said you could share your clothes?" The whole class enthusiastically responds, "We share EVERYTHING!" as they joyously join in the clothes swap. Not many kindergarten teachers would be as flustered as this poor soul, particularly by a boy wearing pink. Pinky of James Howe's "Pinky and Rex" series (S & S) wears it proudly. Munsch and Martchenko are as wonderfully irreverent as ever, poking fun at school rules, teachers, and the literal minds of the young. Readers will be amused and have much to discover amidst the madcap watercolor cartoon illustrations. Dressing, undressing, and sharing are ever-popular topics with this age group. All but the timid or easily offended will want to share this story aloud. Jody McCoy, The Bush School, Seattle, WA

Robert Munsch is an excellent storyteller, and it shines through his books! This story is the absolute, all time favorite of my "Kinders".
All of Munschs' books, including We Share Everything, are great pattern books which are great for teaching a variety of early reading skills including making predictions, etc.
He scored a big time hit with me and my students!

My sons and I could not stop laughing while reading this book! Mr. Munsch has a humorous way of bringing up a frequently discussed topic at that age -- sharing. I have read other books by this author & enjoyed them also.
They are 5 & 8 and did not have a problem with the undressing issue -- they know what is appropriate & what is not. We usually discuss when we read books about what is real & appropriate and what is just pretend.

While it's true that kindergarteners generally would not share their clothes, young children love to think about and consider the ridiculous. My 10 year old thought this book was hilarious. Robert Munsch has a peculiar insight into the mind of children. My Head Start classroom yells "Robert Munsch" every time I bring out a new book.

A big hit with our kids, especially when read out loud (they got a big kick out of our exaggeration of "we share EVERYTHING!!!" each time). Now buying this as gifts to go with the compilation of the Munsch books that do not include this story.

I read this book to my kindergartners for the first time this year. We laughed and laughed because it was so much like life in our kindergarten class. As always, Kindergarten teacher ends up eating own words! I intend to read it for our kindergarten graduation.

I adore Robert Munsch's Love You Forever, so I thought I'd also like this book. Nope. It's not even the clothes sharing that bothers me all that much. It's the attitude of the teacher! She's all fairy perfect at the beginning, then totally flies off the handle at the end. I don't like my kids thinking teachers are that way. So I gave this away before even reading it to my children.

Amanda and Jeremiah share a typical day at their first day ofKindergarten. Sharing is so hard for these little kids. When theteacher said, "We share everything", they took her seriously! Young children can relate to this story because sharing is such a big part of school and life!

This book is a "must have" for any Kindergarten teacher or a kindergartener. My students love to hear this story about sharing...over and over and over! I usually introduce it the first week of school when I am reviewing class rules and expectations. It is humourous, age appropriate,and a class favorite!
