This book is a super cute book about a brother and all of the ways he is cool. His clothes are talked about, what he likes to do, etc. At the very end, the little brother shows that he is cool too because he is just like his brother. (2 page comparison of both boys.)

This book is about a little boy describing his brother and how cool he is. Everything about the older brother is cool according to the young boy and in the end he finds that he too is considered cool. A good book for younger children maybe kindergarten or first grades who usually have older siblings. ( )

Browne, A. (2007). My brother (A. Browne, Illus.). New York: Farrrar,
Straus and Giroux.

A younger brother describes his older brother and it is quite obvious he idolizes him. According to the younger brother his older brother does everything right. Simple, clear, strong vocabulary is used to describe the older brother. Words a child would use and understand.

This book is a toddler book. It can be completed in one sitting. It is about something in their immediate environment. The pictures and words are large. Some objects are labeled.

My Brother is ideal for a read aloud since the illustrations and texts are large enough to be seen easily. This book can be used to talk about family/siblings. Objects can be identified and there are some objects already labeled.

The sharp, clear illustrations are on white or notebook looking paper. Some pages have more details than others; however, it is still perfect for a toddler. The illustrator incorporates the endpapers into the story by using the same notebook looking paper and placing basic words to describe the brother in colorful bubbles. The artwork is very simple and matches the simple text perfectly.
