What could you swap a button for? In this book, a button gets swapped for two teacups. The teacups get swapped for ropes. The ropes get swapped for….and the swapping continues until the sad friend has everything he needs to turn his old ship into a new one.

This book is a great tool when teaching children that sharing and swapping is important.

The illustrations of the swapped items are in colour, the rest are in black and white. A very effective way of highlighting what is happening in the story.

Written and beautifully illustrated by Steve Light, published by Walker Books.
