". . . `I like this book mommy, I'm really glad you downloaded it. Raymond is funny,' he tells me, after he takes it out to read it--again . . .
"And what a surprise--on the last page, there's a parent guide to help young readers engage in the stories' emotional content. A creative way to get your little ones talking about feelings and the challenges of getting along with others!
"We are enjoying this story over and over again. And since Owen is on the brink of learning to read independently, the lessons are endless for him. He can handle the story all on his own--giving him a sense of pride." More »

The anti-bullying message is one that parents will appreciate, but the age-appropriate text, colorful art and endearing characters will keep kids interested too.
Be sure to download (free!) the accompanying mp3 file, containing lively background music, sound effects and a professionally-done voiceover.
"This is a must-have story for parents and practitioners alike. The story is relevant and relatable to young children. It could be easily incorporated into a read aloud, independent reading, or whole group reading activity. Guidance and Social Workers will enjoy using this app with their therapy groups in learning about siblings and relationships.
"Kudos to Electric Eggplant for developing a book that not only has charming illustrations, easy to follow story and dialogue, but also is truly accessible to a wide range of students."
One note: even if your child reads, this is a 'read it to me' book. Parents: take the time to read and talk about the book with your child; you'll be delighted that you did (until the 75th time you read it in a week!)
Told through the eyes of sibling alligators, this children’s book is an adorable read for any child to guide them through the anxiety of making new friends or dealing with sibling rivalry.
Complete with a QR code to have an audio read-along, the book is even perfect for the hands-off parent, or the child who insists on reading the book over and over.
I recommend this book to the parent of any child who has difficulty making friends or experiences anxiety when doing so.
