learning to share

With so many milestones for young children to reach, it can be hard for parents to remember what children should know and when. A survey by the nonprofit ZERO TO THREE found that 43 percent of parents think a child should master sharing by age two, when the skill actually develops between ages three and four. In “Sharing at Camp” (pages 6–9), Indi and fellow camper Isabel struggle with this practice. After you read this story, you might talk with your child about how Indi and Isabel handle the situation and what self-management skills they use. What is your family’s favorite sharing strategy? Sincerely,…

sharing at camp

It was the first day of Draw-a-Doodle art camp, and the campers were choosing materials for a project. “I’m using these cardboard tubes,” said Tex. “Cool,” said Indi. “I’ll use this green yarn.” “Hey,” said Isabel. “You took my yarn!” “I did not,” said Indi. “Yes you did,” said Isabel. “You took it. Give it back!” Indi tried to talk, but instead of words, only tears came out. “OK, friends,” said Counselor Lindsey. “Let’s take a deep breath and count to 10.” The girls breathed deeply and counted. “It sounds as if you both had the same idea about the yarn,” said Lindsey. “Would you like to take turns with the ball of yarn or each cut a piece to use?” “You can use the yarn first,” said Isabel. “I’ll hold the ball for you.” “OK,” said Indi. “Now we’re the…

the missing cookies

One day, Tiger and Panda made curly cookies. They set the cookies outside to cool and went into the forest to play hide-and-seek. “Surely the cookies are cool enough by now,” said Tiger as he found Panda for the third time. “Let’s go back to your house.” But when they reached Panda’s house, the cookies were gone. “Tiger,” said Panda, “did you eat the cookies while I was hiding?” “Me?” said Tiger. “I didn’t eat a crumb. You gobbled them up, didn’t you?” The friends glared at each other. Just then, Sloth Bear ambled out from the nearby trees. “Thanks for the cookies,” he said. “What cookies?” asked Tiger. “The ones you left here for the animals of the forest,” said Sloth Bear. “Very nice of you. Very tasty too.” Panda and Tiger began to laugh. “I’m sorry…

who’s moving in?

Bebo and Juan were playing outside when a large truck parked in front of Juan’s apartment building. “¡Mira ese camión!” said Juan. “That’s a moving truck,” said Bebo. “I wonder who’s moving in.” The movers started to unload boxes. One mover carried a bicycle. “¡Mira esa bicicleta!” said Juan. “That bicycle is like mine. Maybe someone our age is moving in,” said Bebo. Someone appeared carrying a big box. A ball fell off the top and rolled toward Juan and Bebo. “¡Mira esa pelota!” said Juan. “Let’s give that ball back,” said Bebo. He picked it up, and the two friends walked over. “¡Hola! ¡Bienvenida!” said Juan. “Hi! Welcome!” said Bebo. “Hi, I’m Gaby,” she said. “Thanks for my ball. Would you like to play?” Bebo and Juan helped her carry boxes inside. Then the three new friends played together for the…
