The Holiday Brothers Present: Big Brother’s Little Problem, written by Onicka J. Daniel and illustrated by Jess Araujo, tells the story of a young boy who feels annoyed and pestered by his little brother. The little brother likes to follow his older brother around like a shadow, gets into things he is not supposed to, and even laughs at him, which makes it very hard for an older sibling to appreciate the brighter side to having a younger sibling who admires and looks up to him.

The Holiday Brothers Present: Big Brother’s Little Problem is a very interesting short children’s story with an easy to follow plot that would be a lovely read for young children. The characters are well developed, understandable and easy for anyone with siblings to relate to. The illustrations are very well done, helping to tell the story through pictures as well as words. I love the way Daniels continued after the story with question pages that can help a child consider their own situation with their siblings. The positive messages after the question pages point out brilliantly the perks to being a role model for a younger child. I recommend this charming story to anyone with children in their home, a daycare or even in an elementary classroom or library. The positive messages in this story will help promote understanding amongst siblings and possibly help deter sibling rivalry and promote consideration of others amongst children.
