The Sweet Side of Sibling Rivalry
Children tend to become what we expect them to be. When we envisioned them as vessels waiting to be filled with virtue, they made like vessels; nowadays we see them as consumers, and they fall into line, getting, spending and demanding designer gear. A couple of new books about brothers and sisters reveal expectations adults currently have of sibling relationships. Big Brother demands that Harry be thrown in the trash, flushed down the toilet or put back inside Mommy. Robie H. In two years looms a significant power imbalance, and their relationship demands elaborate rules, record-keeping and negotiation. The stories are told from the alternating viewpoints of Jake and Abigail, but the voices are indistinguishable.
In my fantasy family life, it would be all love and unity all the time between my four little girls. These 15 books explore all sides of the sibling dynamic and have been wonderful for gently introducing delicate conversations about how we want our family relationships to grow and develop. In this delightful picture book, written and illustrated by sibling team Jennifer and Matthew Holm, an "evil princess" and a "brave knight" share a castle together — and take their right to torture one another seriously!

If your children rarely bicker, never hit, and maintain a harmonious relationship filled with flowers and rainbows, then click away immediately. Go do some online shopping for strappy sandals or peruse pop culture updates. If your children, like mine, can get downright nasty — red-faced, hair-pulling nasty — then please read on. Though my son and daughter can be the best of buds, working on puzzles and projects together, they also can fight in a way that breaks my heart. Acknowledge the ugly feelings.

Now that summer is upon us, we have been spending a lot of quality time together as a family. Of course this is wonderful and magical… and often ends with my children arguing and tears. Luckily we have found some incredible books that touch upon this subject. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have! Maple and Willow Together by Lori Nichols, I absolutely love this beautifully illustrated and skillfully told story of sibling rivalry. Maple and Willow are sisters and best friends.
