I'm the children's librarian for our church and this book is one of the busiest in the library. Out of the hundreds of Christian picture book titles shelved, the kids pull this one time after time.

This book is great! It's perfect for parents who are stuggling with sibling rivalry and showing that we all need each other to make the family complete.

I thought this book was very good! It made me laugh! I can relate, I felt the same way about my sister growing up! I'm an adult and I even enjoyed it myself! My sister is pregnant and I'm buying her a copy for her to read to her new baby.
