This tender book introduces reader to imaginative Lizzie with a talent for creative writing, who finds her inspiration in the last place she would like to admit, her new, demanding baby brother, Marvin.

When he goes away on a trip, Lizzie, who loves to tell and write stories, is surprised to discover that much of her storytelling inspiration comes from her messy baby brother Marvin. This book is really cute. I would read this book to my students to show that you can get inspiration from anywhere.

"Once Upon a Baby Brother" by Sarah Sullivan was just perfect. It was Grandbabe boy's actually birthday as Grandbabe girl's birthday was the day before. It was so fun to hear the fantastic stories that Lizzie makes up. But with a new baby brother in the house it is harder to get anyone to notice her. But never fail Lizzie can come up with a great new story.
