    1. I truly love the unspoken understanding there is between these two brothers. Their bond makes them best friends even before the younger brother has learned to talk. They look out for each other, even when one brother has done something wrong affecting the other one. They are consumed with empathy for each other as siblings. This book is filled with the innate love and compassion that is shared between siblings. About the AuthorPenny Dale was born in London. At an early age, she knew she wanted t [...]


    2. This book is great to read because most children will have siblings. Before reading you could say that even though the book is about brothers, anyone who has a sibling can put themselves into the story and feel the same way the brothers do. This book is great for teaching children how to help their siblings, especially after they're mean to them. This book is predictable because on almost every page the big brother always says he knows what little brother wants. This trend continues in reverse b [...]


    3. Even with the 'eighties clothes, the illustrations in this book are amazing--the kind of expressions that a good photographer feels lucky ever to capture. The story expresses so well the close but conflicted relationship between young siblings in a loving but issue-addressing way. One of the books I can't bring myself to return to the library.


    4. This book was a big hit with Big Brother! He loved being able to insert his and his brothers name into the story and got a bit shy at the part where big brother doesn't want to share. This story really struck a cord with my son who insisted we read it over and over and over


    5. Fits the purpose for which it was written perfectly. In fact, when Little Brother tried to take Big Brother's truck my own "Big Brother" shouted "no!" before I read out the same scenario in the book.


    6. This story discusses the communication between two brothers, and shows how special a brother is to have. It would be good for growing families, or even a teaching unit on different parts of the family.


    7. This book very simply shows us the bond that brothers have, even as young boys. When something is wrong with little brother, big brother always seems to know what it is. Can the same be said when something is wrong with big brother?




    8. In top 3 of favourite kids picture books ever. Having two sons about that age gap may have influenced that!!


    9. Also one of my all time favorite books - this is the most precious story about the love of brothers. The illustrations are also beautiful.


    10. The story evolves around the relationship of two brothers and their ability to understand each other. Simple yet wholesome story with relevant illustrations
