Siblings


I just bought this book for my niece's first birthday.

"What Brothers Do Best; What Sisters Do Best" by Laura Numeroff, Illustrated by Lynn Munsinger, 2009.

It's one of those books that you flip upside down in the middle.

My niece is like me in that she will grow up with a brother AND a sister. I never had to think "I wonder what life would be like with a brother?"

This book is about all of the things that sisters and brothers can teach their younger siblings.

The way the story is told could be for younger siblings who look up to their older siblings but ALSO for older siblings who may be jealous of a younger sibling. It reinforces the important role of being a brother or a sister.
