Little Hare Books, 2011. ISBN 9781921541797.
(Age: 5-7) Lily is the main character in this story. She not only loves the colour pink but also likes to share things. Even though she likes to share, she has no-one to share with; she is lonely.
Lily likes certain things but has no-one to share with. She finds no fun playing by herself. She asks different animals to play with her but they all have different excuses or mannerisms. Until she meets a pig who also happens to be pink! He enjoys playing games with her and sharing!
All the things Lily likes are in different shades of pink, including the pig! This is an easy story to read where children will learn about how nice it is to share - the beginning of friendship. A very pink picture book that 5-7 year olds will enjoy.
