"...makes for interesting discussions comparing [brothers and sisters]."
"The creative team behind What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best (S & S, 1998) scores again. This would be a great book to share with a child who is anticipating a new sibling or who needs to be reminded of the perks of being the older one."
