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.
