PreSchool-Grade 2-Hugs, kisses, hair brushing, and roughhousing are all captured in this photo essay about sibling relationships. The crisp, clear, full-color photos present ethnic, gender, and generational diversity, and include adoptive families. Senisi does not gush rosy platitudes, but frankly states that brothers and sisters can be annoying, illusive, and might just usurp too much parental affection and attention. Overall, however, it seems well worth the effort to gain their companionship and love. A fine concept book in an area of constant demand, Brothers & Sisters will be an asset to libraries.

Ages 4-8. Essentially a collection of color photographs with captions, this title has little narrative flow. The connecting thread is that the photos all show an older sibling with a younger one, and the captions reflect the joys and problems of the sibling relationship. The culturally inclusive photographs show attractive, healthy children engaged in a variety of mostly outdoor activities. The production values of the photographs are very high; combined with large type on white pages with a matte finish, the pictures are very handsomely done. This would be useful in a parenting collection, for a parent to use with a child-one-on-one, or for a story hour with a family theme. Janice Del Negro
