Usually ships within 6 days


Joey is concerned that Mom prefers his siblings over him. Joey is more rambunctious and mischievous than his studious older brother Jake and his sweet baby sister Olivia. Is it possible that Mom loves Joey, Jake and Olivia unconditionally, mischief and all? Children with siblings may naturally compare their own behaviors to those of their sisters and brothers, and feel that they are not living up to their parents' expectations. This book serves as a fun reminder about the concept of unconditional love. You may not always love the ways your child behaves, but you will always love your child for who he or she is as an individual! Includes a Note to Parents.
