|About the Book|
The illustrations in this book capture the emotions of the characters very well, even though they dont have much detail. The simple shapes used convey the love of the mother and the shyness and curiosity of children. I thought it was funny how he kept referring to Steve as Stupid, and even though thats just what kids do, Im not sure it has a place in todays culture where namecalling is taken a little more seriously because of bullying. The moral was sweet, that even though a younger kid can be annoying, they still worm their way into our hearts and routines, and we miss them when theyre gone.
