Leo Lionni's "It's Mine!" is a wonderful story about three frogs - Milton, Rupert, and Lydia - who have trouble sharing. The frogs constantly fight about food and their space on the island. One day, a large rainstorm comes, flooding the island. As their land dwindles away, the frogs find safety together on a rock. After the storm subsides, the frogs discover that they have actually found safety on a toad. Realizing that they survived because they worked together, the frogs decide to share everything."It's Mine!" is a cute story with a powerful message for young children. The story could be used as a tool for teaching students about the importance of working together and sharing. It's a great storyline with nice pictures.

Young kids will identify with these froggy friends that claim ownership of everything they want. Sharing, appreciation and friendship win over their sensibilites in this favorite children's fable.

Kids love frogs so its great for them to learn about the habitat of frogs and we should share.

This would be a great book for a teacher to read to a Kindergarten-2nd grade class. The story is about 3 frogs who live on an island together. The 3 frogs fight about everything and they hate to share. At the end of the story, the frogs realize how lucky they are to have eachother and they also realize the importance of sharing.

Genre: Fantasy This is a good example of fantasy because there are three frogs named Milton, Rupert, and Lydia and they all fight at the beginning of the book and are selfish but by the end they become friends and nice to each other because of Mr. Toad who acts as their rock when a flood comes and wipes away their house land.Setting: was on the land by the water, which was super important to the story because without the right setting the frogs wouldn't have been fighting about thinking something was "mine" Theme: Teaching on not being selfish and working together. Living in harmony was the underlying theme of this story.Art Media: Paper collage and pencil for frogs frowns and smiles

It's Mine! is a work of fiction and has colorful collage illustrations. It is an easy fiction read. This book could be read during story time or if the teacher is having behavior problems in the classroom.
