First, to have a solid lesson on sharing! The idea of sharing is an incredibly subtle concept, so to keep things simple I appealed to the inherent selfishness of most young kids—how is sharing is beneficial to you?

Second, to have high contrast illustrations and simple art that's easy to visually consume.

Third, I wanted to make a book that a pre-reading kiddo could pick up and still follow the story and understand the lessons. Toddlers are also still figuring out facial expressions and how we use them to communicate—so I zoomed in on the main characters' faces so they could tell the story, with or without words. 

Shoutout to my mom for helping with the concepting of this book! You're the best.
