Reviews

"This book needs to be shared in classrooms, in storytimes, and especially within families." -- School Library Journal

"Greenfield and Gilchrist team up again in this collection of 25 short poems about life with siblings. The poems' titles indicate the range of family themes: 'New Brothers, ' 'Mad at Dad, ' 'Grandma and Her Sisters, ' 'Let's Make Up, ' 'Aunt Me, ' and 'The Two of Us, ' which concludes, 'Whatever we do, / we know we're going to do it / together.' The styles are varied; some poems follow strict rhymes, while others are written in looser forms. Everyone can relate to the poems' affection, frustration, laughter, jealousy, and family pride, as well as the love that always shines through." -- Booklist

"Timeless...clear and universal. Everyone can relate to the poems' affection, frustration, laughter, jealousy, and family pride, as well as the love that always shines through." -- ALA

These are the sweetest poems for kids and families of all kinds. -- Charlotte Observer

"Together their picture book celebrates how brothers get along with brothers, sisters with sisters, and various other combinations." -- Horn Book Magazine
