"Sharing is something everyone in our family struggles with and food is no exception. Willems does a wonderful job of showing the different sides to sharing, from the benefits to the guilt. The attractively simple illustrations makes this appropriate for all ages. If you're looking for a good beginner's reading book, this is a solid level 1 reading that any kid will enjoy. Watching the tension build as the ice cream begins to melt and the elephant struggles with his conscience is amusing and something my children could easily relate to. A good lesson mixed in with a marvelous story puts this in our favorites pile."
"Elephant and Piggie books rarely disappoint and this one is no exception. The language is simple and repetitive and carefully placed against the grey background of speech bubbles. The rest of the page is full of white space and Elephant trying to decide whether or not he should share his very favorite ice cream with his very best friend. When the inevitable happens, what with all the dancing and gesticulating and torturous decision making, the surprise ending leaves everyone - readers, listeners and characters alike - with a smile on their faces and ready to share some ice cream with a friend.
