SHEILA WON'T! BUT YOU WILL WANT TO SHARE this charmer with your favorite three, four, or five year old... Curly-headed round-bellied little Sheila, sweet in her overalls and t-shirt, is not one for sharing. Unless you want green beans. It takes a very loved and loving Nana who shares a hug and kiss to change Sheila's ways. Utterly simple, completely disarming, and absolutely true.

Will Sheila Share? is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Ms. Savadier lives in Massachusetts.

There have been a number of attempts to address the difficult concept of sharing for toddlers, but Savadier approaches the topic for very young children in a very simple story.

At midpoint, Savadier captures her eponymous heroine in a paroxysm of selfishness: Sheila's face is pink with rage and her eyes wide with greed as she successively refuses to part with a huge ball, a bag of cereal and a plush bunny.
