Weekend Review: Brotherly Love

Baby Can
If you have ever had a second child added to your family, I guarantee you will relate to Baby Can by Eve Bunting. In Baby Can, everytime Mom, Dad, or Grandma comment on the things new baby James can do, big brother Brenden has to show that he can do it better.
This book reminds me of my two boys. When we comment at how well Tyson has rolled over, Logan has to roll all the way across the floor. If Tyson kicks his feet, Logan kicks his for a few seconds longer. Logan also likes to show me how he can spit up. Just like Tyson. ewww!
I really enjoyed this book. I enjoy books that are relatable to the adult audience as well as entertaining for kids. The text was clear and simple. In fact, I think a fairly new reader could handle this independently. The pictures were cute, supportive of the text, and even extended the story.

  3. Another that I love is Julius the Baby of the World by Kevin Henkes. Same theme, adding a new baby to the family. This book is very funny and is so true to life! :)
