Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In their now familiar pattern (beginning with What Mommies Do Best / What Daddies Do Best, 1998), Numeroff and Munsinger add another flip book with mirrored text and whimsical illustrations to the series about family relations. Sisters can help you climb a tree, push you on a swing, and share a delicious snack. Brothers can teach you how to swim, do a puzzle with you . . . play pretend. And of course, best of all, they give one another love. The boys' activities pictured often seem a bit more adventurous and exciting than the girls', which makes for interesting discussions comparing the two.--Austin, Patricia Copyright 2009 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This lighthearted companion book to What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best can be flipped over and read from either direction as brother and sister animals playfully engage with one another. On one side, a brother pig assists his piglet sibling ("Brothers can help you climb a tree, push you on a swing, and share a delicious snack"), while a brother lamb and his sister make music, play pretend and build a clay castle. Meanwhile, on the flipside a sister lion teaches her younger sibling how to swim, while an older dog helps clean a messy room and consoles her sister when her baseball team loses a game. Both stories end with the cheery message that "best of all," siblings "can give you lots and lots of love!" Ages 4-8. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
