Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
A big brother shares why having a little brother is so much fun. He can make his little brother laugh, he can show him how to kick a ball and a ride a bike and he can sing to his little brother when he is crying. Big brothers are different from little brothers. The little brother loves to sleep on Daddy's chest, but the big brother sleeps in a big bed. Little brother wears diapers, but big brother can use the toilet. Most importantly, big brothers love their little brothers. A sweet story about brothers and family relationships. The story highlights how to care for siblings and love family members. Writing and pictures are simple enough for toddlers to understand, but complex enough for five to seven year olds to enjoy. Parents can use this book as springboard for teaching older children how to respond to a new baby. Reviewer: Natalie Gurr
Kirkus Reviews
Along with its simultaneously publishing counterpart, I Have a Sister, a fine way to imprint sex-role stereotypes on impressionable young minds. Sandwiched between a size comparison ("He is very small. I am much bigger") and an expression of love, a big brother--old enough to sleep in a bed, but not to sit on the toilet without parental supervision--demonstrates ball kicking, bike riding and other things "big brothers can do" for an infant sibling. In the similarly structured …Sister, a girl's demonstration of sisterly activities inclines toward dancing, skating, helping Mommy wash the baby, telling stories and (early soccer-mom training) pulling dolls and stuffed animals in a cart. Bound in, respectively, blue and pink covers, the sturdy pages in both feature very simply drawn figures with oversized heads and dots for eyes suspended against patterned pastel backdrops. "When he gets bigger, I will let him use my bicycle," promises big bro. For little sister, the vaguer prospect that "we will do all my favorite things together" is exemplified on the facing page with a pirouette. It's never too soon to start constricting a child's options and expectations, is it. (Picture book. 3-5)
