In this book a toddler, a baby, and a dog learn about sharing. There are only two words in the book "Mine" and "Woof", but the rest is up to the reader to figure out from the pictures. The artwork is great and tells you the story without any problem. In the end they all learn that sharing can be fun, even the dog.

Loved the pictures and the story here. The playfulness the artist captures really paints a heartwarming picture of family life at an early age.

Definitely appreciated this one after four or five times going through it to make sure I was seeing everything in the pictures. There's a really nice sequencing of events here, endpaper-to-endpaper, showing how you get from a nice clean kitchen with a tidy pile of toys to a sopping mess. (One thing falls in the water, all the things must fall in the water; toddler pats the dog and says, "Mine!", so the baby tackles the toddler and says, "Mine!")

I'm not sure it's a baby or young toddler book, despite the main characters, just because of the number of objects on each page, the soft colors, and the cause-and-effect that must be understood, but I would love to give it to a chatty three-year-old or an on-the-brink-of-reading preschooler and let them go to town.

Just watching the socks work their way off the toddler's feet made my day. ( )

"Crum uses only the title word (if you don't count a single "Woof?"), but the various inflections speak volumes about the comic dynamics of sharing...[Barton's] dizzyingly expressive digitized pencil sketches seem to be everywhere at once continually reframing the action to make sure readers savor every gleefully anarchic moment."--Publishers weekly, starred review ""The two youngsters are simply adorable, and their alternating surprised and gleeful expressions, as well as those of their canine accomplice, are priceless. In a final scene, the women reclaim the water-soaked children in a room now much the worse for wear. Youngsters will eagerly participate in repeated tellings of this watery escapade."--School library journal, starred review… (more)
