this is actually two books in one. One half is Big Brother, Little Brother. The flip side is Big Sister, Little Sister. I find it curious that the brothers were on the "front" and the sisters on the "back" of the book. book shows the interpersonal relationships of siblings and how the older on can teach the younger one. real photographs make discussions quite interesting.

Book description
This is a nice book for boys to read. Especially if they have brothers. It also would be a great book to use in the classroom to teach punctuation. It has a nice dedication and would be great to use as a example of what dedications could look like.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803728700, Hardcover)

Buddies, pals, keepers of secrets, givers of wedgies-brothers! Who but a brother could hoard all the donuts and protect and look up to you at the same time? Funny true-to-life photographs illustrate this portrait of five sets of real brothers, squabbling, wrestling, laughing, sharing, discovering, growing up side by side. Whether big, little, or in-the-middle, boys of all sorts are sure to find plenty of "hey, that's just like us!" moments to connect to and share.

Marci Curtis also created Big Sister, Little Sister, whose "eye-catching photographs capture moments of energy, creativity, and affection" wrote School Library Journal. "What is plain is the happiness coming off the pages . . . scenes that delight, moments of pure companionship to make other siblings smile," wrote Kirkus Reviews.
