Discover the magic of sharing in this joyful picture book about the world of fairy godmothers, from award-winning author-illustrator team Samantha Berger and Mike Curato.

Meet Shari, the Sharey Godmother!

She loves to share! Whether it's her seat on a rollercoaster, her tropical vacations, or candy from her candy jar, it makes her happy to see other people happy.

But some of the other fairy godmothers worry about Shari's sharing. What is she getting back in return? So Shari tries NOT sharing and soon realizes that giving to others is a big part of what makes her who she is.

Bursting with color and magic, The Sharey Godmother reveals the joy of sharing for sharing's sake and the power of generosity to make the world a more giving place.
