Reviewed by Gisela Dixon for Readers' Favorite

Gillie Can Share by Sarah-Leigh Wills is a cute and simple story about a young rabbit named Gillie, who is generous and kind and likes sharing things with people. Once upon a time, Gillie is baking cookies with her father. Once they are done, there are a big batch of cookies and she runs along to share two each with her grandma, grandpa, and her mother. After she has shared them with everyone, she finds that there are two left for her. Being the kind soul she is, she shares one with the reader. This is a very simple plot and story that is easy enough for very young children to read and understand or just be read aloud to.

I found Gillie Can Share by Sarah-Leigh Wills to be a cute and entertaining book. Since the language used is basic and simple, with minimal use of words, preschool children can definitely enjoy this and it is suitable for all young children of all ages. The story is fun and the illustrations throughout this book are colorful and vivid, and definitely eye-catching for young children. They add to the overall look and feel of the book itself. I also liked the fact that, whether consciously or unconsciously, this book breaks some stereotypes and shows Gillie’s dad baking cookies with her. I felt that this was a great step toward breaking gender stereotypes and it shows fathers doing activities with kids that were traditionally thought to be reserved for females only. So, overall, on all levels, I really liked this book and would certainly recommend it for young kids.
