This book was recommended by a parenting forum. Sadly, it was NOT written for parents of siblings. It was written by three adolescent and young adult siblings (two teens, one in her 20's). The entire book is written on the premise that children will be the ones to read this book, in an attempt to improve their sibling relationships. While that's noble, most kids mature enough to read such a book likely don't have serious sibling issues (in my experience). More importantly, as a parent seeking to remedy some early sibling rivalry amongst preschoolers...this book was not only a waste of money, it was a huge waste of my valuable time. The authors are all homeschooled so I do not question their intellect, however it was clear they didn't genuinely author the book in its entirety. Not a problem, as we all know editors do this, however it suggested to me that the use of the siblings as "authors" was more of a marketign ploy than anything else. Finally, and what I consider to be the biggest detractor, is the over-the-top focus on God, Jesus, and faith. I'm a believer of strong faith, however when reading a "self help" book on resolving normal day to day issues with young children, I simply do not need teenager throwing Bible versus in my face. Not only is it unrelated to the topic at hand, it's rather un-Christian and a bit "holier-than-thou". I was annoyed enough to check, and every single page (which has limited text) has a Bible quote. I own a copy of the Bible. Eight, actually. And I do study the Bible. I don't need adolescents with sibling issues telling me that my 4 year old doesn't want to share his Buzz Lightyear with his two year old sister because he's not adhering to some verse in I Chorintians.
