Children who have followed the careers of football greats Tiki and Ronde Barber may not know that one of the twins was almost sidelined permanently from playing while still a boy. That story is told in By My Brother's Side. A serious leg injury has the family doctor predicting that Tiki might never play sports again, but he fails to take into account Tiki's love for the game, his positive attitude, and his devotion to his brother. Ronde's support is enormously helpful, too; he spends hours by his brother's side, recalling memorable games and talking about their heroes, which helps keep Tiki's spirits up. After watching from the sidelines for what seems an interminable summer, Tiki rejoins Ronde for practice and gradually regains his mobility and prowess. He keps telling himself, 'I can do it.' And when football season starts, Tiki is again part of the team. This book shows the importance of having a goal and moving toward it, step by step, until that goal is reached. And for every child who has been sidelined because of his size or ability, this book may be just the inspiration he needs. Those who enjoy this book may also enjoy another picture book, Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee - A Bee's Bit of Wisdom. In it, a young girl learns the value of courage and perseverance when faced with a daunting challenge. Books like By My Brother's Side and Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee are valuable tools for teaching children the importance of developing a strong character.

Tiki and Ronde do good team work, and they make mostly all of the touchdowns in the whole game. The boy¿s mother says play proud. Ronde lets his brother run the ball back. They are going to the superstar game. Do you think they are going to make it? {yes} They are going to make it. Tiki and Ronde were each other¿s best friends. Now they both play for different teams. Ronde plays tamp bay Buccaneers and Tiki plays for the New York Giant. I like this book because they stuck by each other¿s side.

My sons loved this book and the other two from the same authors. The story is interesting shows teamwork and hardwork. It is worth the read and I think all boys who like football should read it.
