7. SHARING AND GIVING

From Chicken Soup for the Child's Soul

7
SHARING
AND GIVING

My mom says it’s good to share,
From crayons to my favorite chair.
I’m not too sure I think it’s fun.
Still, I give to everyone.
I have one friend who I don’t mind,
To give a lick on what I’ve dined.
Bandito’s sweet and not a hog.
He’s my best friend and my dog.
But, boy, did Mommy ever groan,
When I shared my ice-cream cone.
Bandito hardly made a drip,
And even ate the minty chip!
