Another Brother: 11/27/13
Another Brother by Matthew Cordell is is a picture book about being a big sibling. Davy the sheep had four years being his parents' only child. And then his brothers started showing up.
Now it's some years later and Davy the sheep is the big brother to twelve siblings. Of course, they all want to do what Davy does.
Of course it's not realistic to have all of Davy's siblings be the same size but I can imagine that if I had more than one younger sibling, it might feel like they were all the same age.
What makes the book something special though are all the wooly cartoon sheep doing their thing. Sheep with balloons. Sheep eating breakfast. And at the front of the line is Davy, slightly taller and with a head band.
