‘An introduction to the concept of sharing which should prompt some discussion with young readers.’ Father Reading shouts Mine! about Alex English’s Mine Mine Mine! Said the Porcupine

Kieron and T at Father Reading Every Day SHARE their review of Mine Mine Mine! Said the Porcupine by Alex English with illustrations by Emma Levey:

A simple, recognisable story about the struggle to get children to share their toys. Parents will recognise Porcupine well but there is perhaps a missed opportunity with the final message as Porcupine doesn’t learn the error of his ways – he is more lucky that Alfie is a nice boy. The illustrations are a lot of fun – particularly Porcupine’s sneaky face and ingenuity collecting toys!

An introduction to the concept of sharing which should prompt some discussion with young readers. T mainly enjoyed admiring Alfie’s impressive range of toys and told me, “I would like a rocket ship and dinosaur.”

Thank you!
