Such a wonderful story! It's a terrific book for younger siblings to help them deal with how their older brothers or sisters are often "better" at things than they are. And the lesson about doing what you love to do is a great lesson for all kids. I loved the rhyming prose as well, it's a fun book to read aloud. Highly recommend!!
