Hillenbrand, Will. All for a Dime! “A Bear and Mole story.” Holiday House, 2015. $16.95. ISBN 978-0-8234-2946-2. Unp. Ages 1-4. P8Q8
Bear and Mole, along with their friend, Skunk, plan to make a pile of dimes selling their wares on market day. Mole found a bunch of worms, Bear picked blueberries, and Skunk made perfume. Mole and Skunk were not very successful at selling and ended up with only one dime between the two of them. Bear did much better and sold out but he bought ice cream and shared it with Mole. This is a funny story and would make for a great conversation about why Mole and Skunk may have had a hard time selling their items but Bear did better. It is also introduces the topic of sharing.
