Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the first of two titles by Barbara Baker, illus. by Catharine O'Neill, Anna's Book depicts Anna and her mother spending quality time re-reading her favorite book. The artwork shows her mother heading off to fold laundry, so Anna takes over, reading to her teddy bear. In Anna Shares, the grumpy heroine learns that she can avoid sharing cookies with her friend by throwing a temper tantrum. With just one line of text per page, Baker portrays Anna honestly and realistically, with gentle moments as well as cranky outbursts. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Anna, a typical toddler, has a play date with her friend, Justin. At snack time, Anna decides that four cookies are better than two and decides not to share with her now very upset playmate. Mother intervenes and tries to convince Anna that sharing is good. A very realistic scene is portrayed with lots of tears and, ultimately, Justin has to go home. Later Anna role plays sharing with her teddy and bunny. She now decides that sharing is good. The story has a happy ending and why not? Anna gets all the cookies in the end. I am not sure I agree with the ending, but very young children find it amusing. The charming and cheerful illustrations portray a typical event in the life of a toddler. It models the importance of cooperation and sharing and the consequences of not being fair. The small size of the book and the simple text make this a book that a lap sitter will want to read over and over again. There is a companion story Anna's Book that is equally delightful. 2004, Dutton Children's Books, Ages 1 to 4.
—Arlene Connolly
Library Journal
PreS-K-Preschooler Anna is involved in familiar situations. In the first book, her friend Justin comes over to play. When it's snack time, she doesn't want to share the goodies, despite her mother's supportive urging, and Justin has to go home. Anna is left with the treats, which she divvies up, one to each stuffed friend, because "Sharing is good./Then Anna eats all three cookies./The End." In the second title, the child's mother reads a new book again and again, and then the youngster shares it with her teddy bear. They fall asleep using the volume as a pillow. The books are squat and easy for small hands to hold. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are loose, bright, and appealing. Anna, with her blue hair clip and upturned nose, is simultaneously angelic and self-centered. Though slight, these stories are simple and repetitive and cover topics that will have meaning for the intended audience.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
When friend Justin comes over to play, Anna cannot share the cookies mom offers at snack time and cries, "No, no, no." Justin goes home and Anna constructs a way to share and eat all her cookies as well. Simple, yet expressive watercolors capture the mood, ambiance, and quintessential behavior of the egocentric tike. Perfect for preschoolers. (Picture book. 24)

    Anna doesn't learn!

    The story would have been better if Anna had learned to share with her stuffed animals and then that was the end of the book. The sad thing is that the story ends with Anna stealing the cookies from her stuffed animals and eating them. The mother shows no discipline of Anna... this book eximplifies what is wrong with bringing our children up today.
