"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."
"This story could well become a favorite for children who are grappling with accepting a new baby into the family."
