Review

A tool every family needs. --Dr. Jim Logan - International Center for Biblical Counseling

Worth its weight in gold! --Old Schoolhouse Magazine

This painfully honest, hilarious book offers a creative look at how to build relationships between siblings. We read a few pages every day, and I am always delightfully surprised by how well the children apply what we have read. --Beall Phillips - Vision Forum

I am half done reading this book and I love it.
Snappy Stuff
I bought this book because I could see that my homeschooled 11 and 8 year olds were starting to have problems and conflict.
Karen E. Koch
This book has been a wonderful help in their relationships with each other as well as my relationship with them.

Format: Paperback
I was loaned this book by a mother of eleven, so I thought it might be worth reading. The book is written by three homeschooling siblings: girl age 22, boy age 16, and girl age 12. They take turns writing on the same topic. The book is filled with humorous family stories which help to illustrate the points they are making. Their father illustrated the book, so there are plenty of homespun pictures to keep your interest.

The book begins with a general overview of WHY it is important to want to have your brother or sister as your best friend. When I began reading it myself, I thought, "Dull. Why doesn't this book move faster?" But, as I have been reading it aloud to my kids, I see that it moves just fast enough to convict, but not so fast to overwhelm.

The book continues with talking about how doing big things for God requires us to begin by doing "little things" for our siblings, how different people view the world differently, and covers the topics of forgiveness, humility, birth order, praising one another, and truly building friendships. It's a logical progression with more and more practical ideas as the book goes on.

The book is geared for a Christian audience, although not necessarily a homeschool one. It makes a great read aloud as you can read a whole chapter (long) or one of the three sections (shorter) or even part of the shorter sections each day. There are plenty of useful lists which you can read aloud to your children to help them to remember what it is that a servant would do, etc.

Once I finished reading my borrowed copy, I got online and ordered my own! I have seen changes in my children since we started the book, but it's not been a magic wand. Sigh. I wish I could get one of those from Amazon...

To negative reviewer: I am genuinely sorry you were offended by this book and there is no intent to offend with this review.

Obviously, you have every right to share your opinion regardless of whether it is fair to the authors' intent. But first, I would like to say, authors have the right to reflect their own viewpoint in their own books. I do not see that the authors of this book had any intent to deceive any potential consumers.

Secondly, the description (and editorial reviews included in the description) that Amazon provided for this book clearly show the intent and focus of this book is on building familial relationships through a God-centered perspective. I quote from the description given by Amazon: "The book is full of Godly wisdom". *And the product description and what is included on the back of the actual book (in case this book was not purchased from Amazon) states: "...the close relationship that God intends...", "...the treasure that God intended...", and "how we have learned to become best friends". In this last quote, the authors are sharing with us what has helped them. Apparently, they believe the way they became best friends was because of this Godly focus.

Next, six of the eight reviews written before your review was written, directly mention that this book has a Godly, Christian, or Christ-centered approach. Since your review was written for Amazon customers, I must assume that the reviews for this book could have been seen by you before this review was posted. The negative and seemingly scathing review seems to have been a little harsh and unjust considering the honesty of the authors and the audience they are intending to reach.

I really don't believe the authors were deceitful.

If you are a Christian family, especially, with more than one child, you need this book! My kids are loving this one. I read it aloud to them and they never want me to stop. The book is written by the children, for the children, so it speaks to them in a way that I can't. Excellent information, well worth the money - good buy!

I ordered this book thinking it would give ME some great parenting tips, but it has been invaluable to use during devotional time with the kids. It was written by kids, and our children really can relate to the way this is written and presented. Great!

Format: Paperback
This book is written by 3 brothers and sisters and gives interesting insight into how different we are from one another! THe book jumps around a bit, (I mean, it is written by kids), but it has sound advice about having a conscience clear of offenses between you and your siblings as well as a servant's attitude. I liked that it discussed birth order as well. I was afterward quite inspired to work on my friendship with my siblings and not just learn to "get along" but to truly grow into becoming best friends!

Format: Paperback
This book was really fun to read. The 16 yr old boy was really funny. It really made me think about the future. I mean, I'm not getting rid of my 3 brothers any time soon, so I probably need to learn how to deal with them. It might be helpful if we can live together for the next 5 yrs at least without always biting each others' heads off.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I could see that my homeschooled 11 and 8 year olds were starting to have problems and conflict. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. The writing style is so entertaining that my children ASK me to read it to them. The practical advise is presented in a humorous way that can be understood by even the youngest family members. I have recommended this book to several friends and they have been as enthusiastic about it as I have. When we were finished, my children wanted to read it again. A great help in an age old battle!
