Celebrate the love of brothers and sisters everywhere with award-winning author Eloise Greenfield in this poignant collection of poems for and about families, illustrated by renowned artist Jan Spivey Gilchrist.
“These are the sweetest poems for kids and families of all kinds.” —Charlotte Observer
Brothers and sisters can be dear, can be company, can bring cheer, can start arguments, can make noise, can cause tears, can break toys . . .
Still, I think no matter what, I’d rather have them than not.
This collection of 25 short poems about life with siblings—full, half, step, old and young, close in age and far apart—showcases the powerful and special bond between all brothers and sisters. With lyrical text and vibrant watercolor illustrations, Brothers & Sisters is the perfect way for the children in your family to share their love for each other.
“Everyone can relate to the poems’ affection, frustration, laughter, jealousy, and family pride, as well as the love that always shines through.” —Booklist
