Kids say: Not yet rated

This author/illustrator team is known for their frank discussion of difficult topics, and this book is no exception. They take on a realistic and difficult story with humor and understanding. Likely every kid who's become a big sibling will relate to the feelings described here and reading the story will give them the opportunity to explore those feelings without guilt, and with a happy ending.

Cartoonish illustrations skillfully convey big brother's emotional state making it easy for little kids to figure out how he's feeling in each picture without losing the humor that drives the book. Some dialogue appears in talk bubbles, too, adding to the comic-excitement of the story.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
