Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5–8—This colorful manual opens by discussing birth order, considering the advantages and disadvantages of being the oldest, youngest, and the middle child, and how those positions affect sibling relationships. The heart of the book consists of a chapter of tips for defusing some of the most common sibling situations, such as disagreements about fairness, sharing, taking turns, teasing, privacy, bossiness, etc. "Five Ways to Forge a Fabulous Friendship" encourages family meetings for better communication among children and their parents. The last chapter addresses getting along with brothers and sisters who have special needs and living in a blended family. Each of these chapters includes sections called "Fast Fix" (e.g., walk away) and "Action Plan" (which outlines more long-range changes).The book includes reading lists for parents and caregivers as well as for siblings of children with special needs. Mark's humorous, quirky cartoons reinforce the helpful suggestions. A useful addition—Elaine Lesh Morgan, formerly at Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

From Booklist

Starting with the wry subtitle and the colorful cover cartoon of two fuming kids standing back to back, this lively title uses accessible humor to approach sibling-related topics, such as birth order, privacy, jealousy, bullying, and bonding. The authors discuss each subject in a child-centered, casual, and humorous tone; tips about how to get the jealousy monster off your back, for example, are illustrated with a cartoon of a huge purple creature towering over a kid's shoulder. Included are chapters about siblings with special needs, stepsibs, and bonding with older sibs (respect their privacy) and younger sibs (practice asking, not bossing). The book's open design and interactive features, such as quick checklists and quizzes, help make this an effective choice for kids and grown-ups to talk and laugh about together. A final note and bibliography aimed at parents and caregivers will further aid family discussions. Grades 3-6. --Hazel Rochman

Format: Paperback
"Siblings, You're Stuck with Each Other, So Stick Together" is a great mental health handbook to the thorny problem field of sibling relationships, the search for peace and harmony. This creative, colorful, humor-laden book contains tons of ideas and suggestions for ways to enrich and improve anyone's given sibling relationships. Some specific topic areas are: How Birth Order Affects Your Relationship, Top 10 Sticky Situations and Survival Secrets, 5 Ways to Forge a Fabulous Friendship, a Note for Parents and Caregivers, and many more. "Siblings..." is particularly helpful in that it focuses on strengthening and developing positive sibling relationships rather than just subjecting the rivalry or negative aspects of the relationship to analysis and scrutiny. Special sibling problem areas that are dealt with also include half siblings, step siblings, adopted siblings and siblings with special needs. In addition, the Note to Parents and Caregivers includes advice on When Professional Help is Needed, such as "If one child bullies the others, fighting happens often and ruins family plans, or if a child's self esteem suffers.. (p. 115)" "Siblings, You're Stuck With Each Other.." is a practical and fun resource for kids, parents and mental health and teaching professionals.

Good information. A bit too much to assimilate for younger kids. Great for blended families. Gives a good foundation for sibling unity.

Funny thing about this book is that my 11 year old seems to have adapted the title as her punchline. Anytime her siblings irritate her, she reminds herself that she's stuck with them! I guess it worked!

This book deals with the common problem of sibling rivalry. I have used it in my therapy practice, and it does have a very positive message for kids struggling with each other for parents' attention.

Again the book delivered what it promised. The children I introduced to this book find it funny and so are more able to look at their sibling relationships

Plan on using this book for our first month of our first year of home school. Our kids (6 & 8 years old/girl and boy) will be stuck together a lot. This book has a lot of great practical tips and conversation about the realities of sibling relationships. Helps them deal with those inevitable fights and disagreements. Would be great to read with both kids or work with them individually.
