I think my wife cries every time she reads this to our 4 and 2 yr old girls, that alone tells you it's good.

I picked the book up because we, too, have a little Chloe that entered a big sister's world. The pictures are so cute and vivid and the simple story so endearing that we couldn't not have the book at home. It is also universal and works for any family experiencing change - not just with the arrival of a Chloe.

I feel like a great deal of the new books I try to pick up and read to my kids today have lost that. They spend so much time focused on the "message" and the "lesson" that they forget the world. Because once you are in the world, you learn its lessons easily, almost without realizing it:

"Mike" & "House" both teach that we always have purpose and use no matter our stage of life.
"Harry" and "Wild" teach about the value of home and family and love.
and "Caboose" reminds us that once we become happy with our lives, we'll find what we're looking for.

Bringing back that tradition of high art and soft lessons is Micah Player, with his debut Children's book, "Chloe, Instead." If you look up Mr.

This is the best book EVER! My favorite part is at the end, when the sisters snuggled up to each other.

A book about the things that a big sister has to put up with when she has a little sister. You have to put up with a lot, but in the end there is love and laughter. My kids love this book.
