I picked up this book because of the racially diverse children on the cover but I fell in love with it because of the art and story. In this story we meet Elmore Green who is enjoying his life as a single child.
Then one day a New Small Person enters his life. All of sudden Elmore's parent's have less time for him. Half of Elmore's room is soon sacrificed to the New Small Person as well as his toys and even his bed.
Lauren does a great job of capturing the spirit of young siblings in this book and it was wonderful watching the two characters relationships blossom into true brotherhood.
A really great read for families welcoming a new child into their home.
