Product description

Brother has been waiting to play with his new sibling since the day Mommy and Daddy brought him home. However, his excitement soon wears off when everyone reminds him that he must share. As Brother tosses jacks and plays safari with his friends, his family says, "Share with brother and someday brother will share with you." But he doesn't want to share, and his temper steams until he is sent to his room for his selfish behavior.Nevertheless, when the baby becomes sick, Brother doesn't hesitate to come to the rescue! He strings lights across his bed, reads him a book, and even shares his ice cream. Although Brother likes taking care of the little tyke, he later discovers that sometimes sharing comes with a catch!This charming tale, complete with illustrations of cuddly bunnies, humorously approaches the subject of jealousy between siblings. Children will laugh at Brother's silly antics as he grows to accept the baby while parents point out the lesson he learns about sharing.ABOUT THE AUTHORSteven L.

"Everywhere we go, everybody tells me, 'Share with brother!'"The floppy-eared protagonist from Love the Baby is back, and his troubles are mounting. Family members have assured him that his little brother will be lots of fun now that he's getting older, but nobody said anything about sharing . . . and sharing with brother isn't as easy as everyone thinks. In fact, it's enough to make our furry hero completely lose his cool.But when brother becomes sick and perhaps even lonely, his older sibling races to the rescue. Along the way, he discovers just how great it feels to give-and that sometimes sharing comes with a catch!Praise for Love the Baby"Layne's take on the familiar theme is sweet and direct enough even for very young children to grasp."--Booklist"This story could well become a favorite for children who are grappling with accepting a new baby into the family."--School Library JournalSteven L.
