Sharing Is Caring is a 1996 children's picture book that was written by Mark S. Bernthal and illustrated by June Valentine-Ruppe.

It was the first Barney book to be under the Little Golden Books collection.


Baby Bop has a special yellow blankey and a reluctance to share it with anyone. Whenever anyone asks her to share it, she happily offers to share other things in place of the blankey - but she maintains a hold on her most special possession. Until, that is, Snuggles the cat falls into the pool and needs to be dried off so that she doesn't catch a cold; then Baby Bop offers the blankey even before she's asked.
