More about Oh What Fun It Is To Share
“Oh What Fun It Is To Share”: a children’s book that teaches the value of sharing. There is a little boy who once refused to share. He hugged everything he could to himself and refused to make friends with kids in his class, so he wouldn’t have to share.
“Hugger boy,” as he was called, later felt lonely and wanted so much to have fun with the other kids. But first, he had to do something. He had to learn how to share!
