Divided into two chapters, this book is about friendship between Jefferson Bear and Figgy Twosocks. Whenever Figgy needs help, Bear is always there. When it's time for Bear to hibernate, Figgy feels lonely, so she builds a white snow bear to remind her of her friend Bear. Along the way, she finds a new friend, Hoptail the squirrel. When spring comes, her friend Bear reappears to play with her, so, in the end, she has two friends: a new one and the old one.
She has learned that sometimes an unhappy thing happens so that it can bring in a new happy thing.
Martha is back and this time she won't share, so her favorite new word is MINE! She won't share her puppets, her magic tricks or her Ping Pong game. However, Martha soon learns that it's not much fun trying to play these games by herself so she decides to share with her brother and her mom and dad. Martha Doesn't Share by Samantha Berger is the sequel to Martha Doesn't Say Sorry. I can't wait to see what Martha won't do next. Stay tuned!
