Humorous yet practical advice for building positive sibling relationships.

Turn sibling rivalry into positive sibling relationships with this fun, humorous pocket guide for kids. Siblings can make for great friends, and it's nice to have someone who'll love you no matter what. But kids know that sibling relationships can be hard when problems of fairness, jealousy, conflict, tattling, privacy, and other things come up--and they usually do.

Siblings teaches kids how to deal with sibling rivalry and more, including special situations such as siblings with special needs, step-siblings, and adopted siblings, and it focuses on building positive sibling relationships. After all, siblings are siblings their whole lives.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Starting with the wry subtitle and the colorful cover cartoon of two fuming kids standing back to back, this lively title uses accessible humor to approach sibling-related topics, such as birth order, privacy, jealousy, bullying, and bonding. The authors discuss each subject in a child-centered, casual, and humorous tone; tips about how to get the jealousy monster off your back, for example, are illustrated with a cartoon of a huge purple creature towering over a kid's shoulder. Included are chapters about siblings with special needs, stepsibs, and bonding with older sibs (respect their privacy) and younger sibs (practice asking, not bossing). The book's open design and interactive features, such as quick checklists and quizzes, help make this an effective choice for kids and grown-ups to talk and laugh about together. A final note and bibliography aimed at parents and caregivers will further aid family discussions.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
