Overview


There’s nothing quite like spending time with your brother. There are good times to share, messes to make, and, sometimes, bad moods to endure. Me and My Brother lets readers experience all these things through the activities of two young brothers. Together the boys have fun stirring up trouble in the kitchen, playing with daddy in the park, and horsing around in the sandbox. But when afternoon antics turn to tears over a favorite toy, it’s time for some quiet. After a little reading for older brother and a nap for younger, all is well again—and just in time for a pillow fight. A yummy snack rounds out the day. Ruth Ohi blends her gentle visual style with easy, rhyming text to create a simple story that richly conveys the nature of brotherhood. Me and My Brother will be familiar, comforting, and wholly endearing to siblings of any age and to the parents who love them.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Hazel Richman
The book will be great for family sharing; its warm, honest words and pictures will show young children that books can be about them.
Children's Literature
Is there anything more frustrating than the relationship between brothers? Sometimes best friends, often mortal enemies, brothers have always had a special relationship unable to be reproduced. With simple illustrations accompanied by simple, four- or five-word sentences, Ohi captures the roller coaster of emotions that often accompany brotherhood. The brothers interact in many ways, from playing together at the park to fighting over their favorite toys. Intended for the very young, this book lacks a plot. However, a plot would be unnecessary, as each page seems intended more as a catalyst for conversation between an adult and a child than as an attempt to tell a specific story. Great for one-on-one reading to a new big brother who is feeling jealous to help him realize that having a brother can be really fun despite the frustrating things he might sometimes do. This could also be useful in the classroom when talking with very young children about family relationships. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
