Steve Jenkins is one of my favorite children's nonfiction authors. They're enormously appealing to children: wide, colorful illustrations, fun text, and unique subject matters. It's always a happy day when a new Steve Jenkins book is released.
There are awesome books about animal moms/dads and their babies, but have you ever wondered about how animal brothers and sisters get along? You won't be able to put down Sisters & Brothers: Sibling Relationships in the Animal World. We have the sweet and adorable (older sister elephants will often "babysit" a little brother or sister) to the unpleasant but intriguing (black widow spider siblings will eat their younger brothers and sisters). Further facts about the creatures can be found at the end of the book. I love books like this!
