Im a Big Brother by Joanna ColeGreat book for young kids about to have siblings. I bought this for my son when he was 3 and about to have twin brothers. It was a huge transition and this book helped. We put it down for awhile and then 2 yrs later we read it again. This time my son is 5 yrs old and read it on his own. Now he smiles as he talks about all the ways hes a big helper concerning his younger brothers. This book really makes him feel good about himself. Somewhere around a level 1 reader, its too easy for him, but still has merit in addressing the whole family unit idea. It helps me to remember to bring it up every once in a while and ask how hes doing at the whole big brother thing. Its great for older siblings.

We met at library story time and since she was also an American living in London, we had lots to talk about and started going to the park after story time together, going to local events with our girls, and basically just enjoying having a friend. Since it was kind of lonely knowing almost no one in the entire city, she was a complete lifesaver for me.
