Fair Shares is a fun yet simple story asking children to consider: What is fair?

When Bear and Hare try to reach some juicy pears, they realise they need some help. Hare finds three chairs but is it fair that Hare has two chairs and Bear only one? When they have the same, Hare still can’t reach the pears! So a little friend teaches them that fair isn’t always everyone getting the same thing….with hilarious results!

A beautifully simple picture book that considers, what is fair? The answer is not always as simple as you’d think!
