Where to buy it


There’s nothing quite like spending time with your brother. There are good times to share, messes to make, and, sometimes, bad moods to endure. Me and My Brother lets readers experience all these things through the activities of two young brothers.

Together the boys have fun stirring up trouble in the kitchen, playing with daddy in the park, and horsing around in the sandbox. But when afternoon antics turn to tears over a favorite toy, it’s time for some quiet. After a little reading for older brother and a nap for younger, all is well again—and just in time for a pillow fight. A yummy snack rounds out the day.

Ruth Ohi blends her gentle visual style with easy, rhyming text to create a simple story that richly conveys the nature of brotherhood. Me and My Brother will be familiar, comforting, and wholly endearing to siblings of any age and to the parents who love them.
