Today is National Sibling’s Day, so to celebrate your nearest and dearest we thought we’d round up some sibling-related books!
First up is general all round superstar Wonder by R. J. Palacio. August wants nothing more than to be an ordinary 10 year old, but ordinary kids don’t get stared at wherever they go. This funny and amazingly frank debut has moved hearts the world over, and August’s relationship with his older sister Via plays a vital role.
“Because it’s not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed.”
Next is The Worst Thing About My Sister by national treasure Jacqueline Wilson. You couldn’t find two sisters more different than Marty and Melissa; Melissa loves everything pink and girly, whereas as Marty prefers to spend her free time helping her dad with his DIY. When the sisters are made to share a room things look set for trouble, but when an accident happens it looks like the girls are much closer than they think!
“Perhaps that’s the worst thing about my sister. She’s two and a half years older, and no matter how hard I try I’ll never keep up.”
And finally we have the artistic, and incredibly talented, Anthony Browne with My Brother. The brilliant follow-up to best–selling My Mum and My Dad, this affectionate and highly humorous tribute to all brothers is perfect for adults and children everywhere.
“My brother is really COOL. He’s a SUPER skateboarder and he’s got MASSIVE muscles. He can run so FAST that . . . he can FLY! Yes, my brother is really COOL.”
