Martha has officially mastered apologizing. Unfortunately, she still has a lot to work on when it comes to sharing. And while she doesn't learn to love it, she does discover that having her toys to herself means having to play with them all by herself, too. Not so fun!

This hilarious follow-up to Martha doesn't say sorry! shows readers that sharing isn't all that bad when you take it one (small) toy at a time—like Martha does. It gets easier every day. Well, almost every day.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In addition to not saying sorry, Martha the otter has little interest in sharing ("Martha has a new favorite word, and that word is... Mine!"). When Martha refuses to play nice, her parents and brother leave her to play alone, and she soon discovers that "it's hard to ping when you don't have someone to pong." Accompanied by Whatley's expressive pencils and watercolors, Berger quietly reminds readers that sharing, while sometimes difficult, is more fun. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Martha, the pugnacious anthropomorphic otter star of Martha Doesn't Say Sorry, returns as belligerent as ever. Like so many kids we know, her favorite word is "Mine," and she uses it for almost everything. Of course her answer to her questioning baby brother Edwin is always, "No. Mine!" Her mother and father would like her to share and take turns. They walk away with Edwin when she refuses. But Martha finds that it's not much fun performing magic or with her puppets without an audience. And you can't play ping-pong when no one will pong to your ping. After thinking it over, Martha goes to find the rest of her family, her wagon loaded with toys. She asks to share Edwin's trampoline, offering her toys in return. Martha seems to have learned a lesson that readers can share, at least part of the time. Watercolors and colored pencils create charming characters that look a bit like animated dolls. We can follow Martha's changing expressions as she realizes she needs others. Little diapered, pacifier-sucking Edwin is particularly appealing. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS—After learning how to apologize in Martha Doesn't Say Sorry (Little, Brown, 2009), the stubborn little otter returns to master a new lesson. She overuses "mine," her new favorite word, until she is left performing magic tricks without an audience, putting on puppet shows with only one puppet, and playing Ping-Pong without a partner. Through the gentle encouragement of her parents, Martha realizes that she can have more fun if she shares. The watercolor and colored-pencil drawings, with few props and no backgrounds, focus on each character's body language and facial expressions. Through her scowl, up-turned snout, and raised eyebrows, Martha's feelings should be readily evident to youngsters. The simple story line offers nothing new, but fans of other girly animal characters like Kevin Henkes's Lilly, Ian Falconer's Olivia, and Russell and Lillian Hobans' Frances will gravitate toward the lavender cover and feminine accent font.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
Kirkus Reviews
Martha (her new favorite word is "mine") is more than a bit reluctant to share her toys with her baby brother. Solution? Her family ostracizes her until she capitulates. Martha is an appealingly expressive and self-possessed preschool sea otter, and the lineup of items she calls "mine" is quite funny (a lava lamp, a cupcake, a potted plant, a chair, all the teddy bears). As rendered by Whatley, her family is nicely rounded and their expressions patient and loving. The text is simple, nicely paced and to the point: " 'K, Maffa,' says Edwin as he waddles away." But the resolution is a bit flat-footed, coming after Martha is left to think about sharing: "She thinks and thinks and thinks about it." This thinking approach would seem to be a developmental unlikelihood for a preschooler as young as Martha. Young listeners who don't simply feel sorry for the lesson imposed on her may feel manipulated or even slightly outraged on her behalf. Still, for Martha's fans or for parents looking for a book to help deliver a message, this may be just the ticket. (Picture book. 2-5)

    Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite ¿Martha Doesn¿t Sha

    Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite

    “Martha Doesn’t Share!”, written by Samantha Berger and illustrated by Bruce Whatley, is shared in an audio version and will hold your child’s attention as well as share an important life lesson. Martha does not like to share her things with her brother and her favorite word has become “mine.” Martha’s toys and blanket are “mine” and she does not want to share. Martha realizes though that some things are difficult to play and do by herself and it really is not that much interesting to play with her toys all by herself. Martha learns that in order for others to play with her and to have more fun playing, she needs to learn to share her things.

    Sharing and playing with others is a valuable lesson for children to learn at a young age and this is just the book to help teach and reinforce this concept with young children. The audio version of this book is well-done as the quality is excellent and the story is easily understood and followed. Young children will enjoy listening to this story and it has just the correct length to hold their attention. This story illustrates the point that there are items Martha can have fun playing with by herself; however, there are times when it is more fun to play with others and it is a good thing to share. The story is written with the stress on a message to young children in a way that is easily understood by them.

    EVEN MORE MARTHA PLEASE

    Back before the internet, we had Little Golden Books' The Saggy Baggy Elephant, and the Poky Little Puppy; but now the hive mind of pop culture has identified a brand new children's book superstar! Martha the Otter! I read Martha to my niece, and I can tell you it was a delight from beginning to end! The artwork is funny; and the tale of Martha the Otter is in a class by itself. Clever, endearing, and deceptively educational...Martha Doesn't Share is charming from cover to cover. This is sure to be a beloved memory for your child in the same way that your favorite childrens book was for you. Pick this one up, you WILL NOT regret it!

    Lesson Learned Through Self Discovery

    Honestly, when a friend recommended the Martha books because they taught great lessons, I did not have high hopes. I find "lesson books" in general to be preachy and uninspiring. However, "Martha Doesn't Share!" and it's prequel, "Martha Doesn't Say Sorry!" are ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! Spoiler alert: Martha does learn to share (and to say sorry) but she does so on her own. When Martha's baby brother wants to play with her scooter, she says no. Martha's parents suggest that she take turns with her baby brother, but Martha doesn't particularly like to take turns, so she scoots away. At this point, no one tells her what to do, forces her to share, or takes away her toys to punish her. Martha decides to share ON HER OWN. Samantha Berger's writing is surprising, funny, and delivers an honest portrayal of familiar childhood trials. Bruce Whatley's illustrations capture little Martha's hoarding, and are a wonderful compliment and addition to the text. Very highly recommend.

    Fantastic for Grandchildren

    Martha Doesn't Share is a gem. I was able to get an advanced copy from a friend who works for another publishing house and found it to be an amazing book. My 2 grandchildren loved the previous book and this one was easily it's equal - superb. . The illustrations are engrossing, but the words resonate with my grandchildren. They also gpt the messsage - an important one for chidren their ages (5 and almost 4). Keep up the good work and make this an ongoing series!
