Description
HE WANTS TO FOLLOWyou, play with you, act like you, do what you do, and be wherever you are. It's like he's trying to become you Hey, wait is that the plan?
If they re big, if they re little, if they re in the middle, all siblings will recognize the dynamics of this affectionate silly-smart take on the joys, trials, and surprises of being linked to someone who will share their growing up like no one else. Parents will appreciate how the rule is conveyed through humor and silly sibling shenanigans in this warmhearted and lively tale. A great book for families to share.
