When one toddler in a childcare setting takes all the toy animals for herself, she discovers that monopolizing all the toys can be a bit lonely. Will offering one of the animals to another child help bridge the gap? That's Mine is a gentle exploration of early friendship where toddlers will recognize the tension between wanting everything to be “mine!” and the desire to connect with other children.
