Once Upon a Baby Brother

Sullivan, Sarah. Once Upon a Baby Brother. Illustrated by Trisha TusaFarrar, Straus and Giroux. 2010. ISBN: 978-0-374-34635-5.

Ever since Lizzie was very little, she loved to tell stories. She told them to everyone she could. When her parents had her baby brother Marvin, no one at home had time to hear her stories. At least her teacher Mrs. Pennyroyal loved to hear her stories. Everyday when she got time to write at school, Lizzie wrote all she could. Then one day when she sat down to write, she couldn't think of anything. Will she be able to write a story again? I though this book was very good. It is exciting to read for almost any age. When Lizzie goes to school, it is an exciting part to read. I also thought that the strengths of the book were high. I would recommend this book to kids from ages 1 to 10. I liked it and think other kids will too. They will enjoy the book and will realize that even if you don't like something in the beginning, you may end up liking it after all.
