Author Biography

My name is Aisha Holland. I am a mother of two boys and a wife to a loving and supportive husband. It has always been a dream of mine to write a children's book. As a child I would get lost in books and I enjoyed every moment! It is my goal to incite the same excitement in children around the world. The Big Brother Story was inspired by my two boys. They have tons of fun together and so much love for each other. Many little readers can relate to having a sibling or a close friend who is like a sibling. May they too get lost in the pages of my book!

It is bedtime and Desmond wants to finish his bedtime story, and he wants Omari to stay awake to listen to it. His story is all about them and their adventures together. The story begins with the two brothers going hiking up a big chocolate ice-cream mountain but as Desmond is narrating, Omari is already sleepy.
