The good, the bad, and the lovely about having a sibling

Little sisters and little brothers all long for the same few things when it comes to their older siblings: a turn to play, a place on the team, a chance to shine. This book starts with four pairs of siblings in and around an apartment complex, each expressing through play and daily life the many gripes and pitfalls of younger siblings.

Subtly, the narrative shifts to reflect the good things that come with having an older sibling: a helping hand, a partner in crime, a friend for life. The book ends on a high note—when it comes to brothers and sisters, the good outweighs the bad, and both big and little siblings have a special place in each others’ hearts. Minimal text paired with impressionistic, full-spread illustrations creates weight and emotion in this lovely book that will help kids feel understood in all the pains and joys of siblinghood.

MONICA ARNALDO grew up in Ottawa, Ontario, where she was sometimes allowed inside her older brother’s forts. Drawn to illustration by her passion for children’s books, she combines a variety of media to create images full of character. She and her husband live in Montreal with their daughter, Beatrice.
