Format: Paperback
This book is excellent for teaching small children about the limitations and possibilties of a younger sibling. It is also one of the only books about two brothers available for very young children. When my son was disappointed to learn that he would not be receiving the younger sister he had yearned for, this book was great in getting him excited about a little brother. No masterwork of fiction, this, but it does get its point across loud and clear, and that is what matters with this sort of children's book anyhow. Some of the activities anticipated by Little Critter may not be those that every parent wants to encourage, but again, that probably isn't the point.

My older son was given this book 21 years ago when my younger son was born. It is such a cute story and my boys (despite a 6 year age gap) both enjoyed the book for years. When my niece had her second son, it seemed only natural to give this as a big brother gift. My great nephew loves it. Once his little brother learns to walk (yes, taken from the book), I am sure he'll love it too.

I got this book for my son before my youngest son was born. He was 1 at the time so I was searching for books that would help introduce the idea of a new baby coming into the family.

This book is so cute it talks about all the things he will do with his little brother when he grows up. The pictures make me laugh. My now 2 year old loves this book

A Kid's Review on September 26, 2003
Format: Paperback
Me And My Little Brother is a great children's book for ages 5-7.
The book is about a young critter and his little brother doing all different things together. The two of them have snowball fights, ride bikes, and have many more fun adventures together.
There is not much of a lesson to learn, but to be nice to young kids and to help build a strong relation ship with your siblings.
On a scale from one to ten I give it a seven.

The book is very attractive to young readers and makes the addition of a new sibling much less threatening. It builds the importance of having an older brother and has the potential to build self confidence as the older child finds reasons to share his world with a new baby. This author never fails to find ways to cleverly cover life changes for children. Love the book. It is a gift for my grandson who is welcoming a little brother into the home.

We are little critter fanatics at our house. We have at least one copy of every single one and all of my four kids have great memories reading them with me. We welcomed our son into our family last year and my 3rd child always requests this book at reading time. She really relates to the adventures in it and I like the humor in the graphics.

We are expecting our second son, and our eldest will be 20 months when little bro is born. I bought this book to help him think about the new baby. He loves to read the book, but I don't think he has figured out that he will have a little brother soon. I suspect he will enjoy the book even more as he gets older and begins to understand what's going on. Right now, it's just a good book that he enjoys and it makes me feel nostalgic for reading little critter books with my younger siblings.

The story was great and a cute baby shower gift for the older brother. My only problem was the story has a part that talks about how they will have bunk beds together which for a child may start an ongoing request for bunk beds the parent has to address.
