    A Great Character-Building Book

    Children who have followed the careers of football greats Tiki and Ronde Barber may not know that one of the twins was almost sidelined permanently from playing while still a boy. That story is told in By My Brother's Side. A serious leg injury has the family doctor predicting that Tiki might never play sports again, but he fails to take into account Tiki's love for the game, his positive attitude, and his devotion to his brother. Ronde's support is enormously helpful, too; he spends hours by his brother's side, recalling memorable games and talking about their heroes, which helps keep Tiki's spirits up. After watching from the sidelines for what seems an interminable summer, Tiki rejoins Ronde for practice and gradually regains his mobility and prowess. He keps telling himself, 'I can do it.' And when football season starts, Tiki is again part of the team. This book shows the importance of having a goal and moving toward it, step by step, until that goal is reached. And for every child who has been sidelined because of his size or ability, this book may be just the inspiration he needs. Those who enjoy this book may also enjoy another picture book, Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee - A Bee's Bit of Wisdom. In it, a young girl learns the value of courage and perseverance when faced with a daunting challenge. Books like By My Brother's Side and Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee are valuable tools for teaching children the importance of developing a strong character.
