"The Pain" and "The Great One" are not their real names. But you may know their voices. When this girl, age eight, and this boy, age six, tell all about each other, they sound a lot alike. They are brother and sister and they're caught in a contest over whom Mom and Dad love most. You probably know who wins, too, in this funny, family picturebook. -- GoodReads

I don't remember a lot about this one, beyond the fact that I definitely read it as a kid.

This book is a great book about point if view with the view of a big sister and little brother. Both siblings think that their parents love the other one more than the other. They both pose a good argument on why they think this as well. It was very fun to see both sides of the stories and see how the events changed through the voices of the sister and brother. This is a good book to give to siblings to read to make aware that just because you think something, does not mean they are thinking the same thing. ( )

I have always loved Judy Blume books and she's always made me enjoy reading them because they are relatable to her audience, elementary ages. The illustrations were awesome and super helpful to follow along the book with. ( )
