    Big Brother Responsibilities - Terrific sibling book!

    Zachary's time was no longer his own with his new found big brother responsibilities. Beyond his normal chores he is now expected to help all the time. To make it fun Zachary turns into a superhero when he wears his special black-framed glasses. The most difficult task at hand was to keep Layla sleeping during nap time. But how can one young boy accomplish this when there are many outside forces threatening Layla's slumber?

    Have no fear, superhero Zachary is here to save the day from strong breezes, chirping birds, train whistles, and a grizzly bear who means no harm. Through Ms. Stemke's expert rhyme and consonant blends storytelling Zachary learns what family is all about and what it truly takes to be a good big brother.

    Children's author, Kathy Stemke spins an adventurous imagination of big brother responsibilities into a delightful tale accompanied with a comprehensive teacher's learning guide making for a winning combination of a must have book for libraries and classrooms around the globe.

    Jack Foster's brilliant illustrations soar from the pages into your child's imagination making reading a pure delight.

    Adjusting to a New Baby

    Thank goodness for big brothers. When Zachary dons his glasses his imagination is unleashed, and he gains super powers. His little sister, Layla, is in his charge. Forces threaten to wake her, but Zachary stomps on their plans.

    A big brother or older sibling may feel displaced with a new baby in the picture. Kathy Stemke's book shows children how to adopt a new role as protector and have fun using their imagination.

    Keeping an eye on a sleeping baby could be boring, but not for Zachary. He takes the baby for a walk and uses his imagination to add spice to the trip.
    As he imagines everything from silencing a train's whistle to a bear's growl children are spell bound by the colorful illustrations by Jack Foster.

    For an added treat, the book introduces consonant blends within the text and lessons in the back of the book. Stemke's experience as a teacher is exercised by the added lessons and supply teachers with ready-made lessons.

    The "Teacher Supplement" includes:

    * The link to a template of thick black-framed glasses that Zachary wore
    * Comprehension questions
    * A consonant blend song
    * A consonant blend musical chairs game
    * A consonant blend worksheet
    * Dolch Sight Words Recognition exercise
    * Instructions for Beanbag Hoop Toss
    * And more

    I highly recommend Sh Sh Sh Let the Baby Sleep.

    Superhero Brother

    In Sh Sh Sh Let the Baby Sleep, Kathy Stemke tells a story that children, especially those who have younger siblings, can relate to. Zachary's life takes a drastic change when a baby sister enters it. He puts on his special glasses and uses his creative imagination to become a superhero and quiet all the wild and noisy commotions that disturb her sleep. Each page of this delightful book is filled with bold, colorful illustrations by Jack Foster and has cute rhymes, which add to the fun. As an added bonus, there are games, word puzzles, a song, and rhymes at the end of the book. It's a great book for home and the classroom.
