Sisters and Brothers was a take on the animal world that is not normally explored in literature, and it's a shame that this angle hasn't been looked at more closely before. Kids generally like stories about animals, and kids who have siblings, as my niece and nephew do, may find extra enjoyment learning about the sibling relationships among animals.What was especially interesting about Sisters and Brothers was the diversity of the animals covered. Myna birds, anteaters, shrews, and grebes (among [...]

I grabbed this book because of the elephants on the front. They're my favorite, so I thought this book would be all about elephants. However, I was in for a nice surprise. This book was all about different kinds of animals and the sibling relationships they had! It did start with the elephants, but it also talked about lions, bugs, and even bats! I thought the illustrations in this book were fine. Nothing to complain about, but also nothing to rant and rave about. They looked nice, but could be [...]

Sisters and brothers is a great book that explores animals' relationships with their siblings in nature. On each page, a different species is introduced, and their unique relationship with their sibling is explored. It is educational and factually correct, so this would be a great book to use for science education in a classroom. I also think that it would be fun for parents to read to their children. I think that a good age range for this book is 4-8.

This book was not my first choice, but I actually very much enjoyed it. Although a somewhat random collection of various animals, it remains focused on the sibling aspect of each species discussed. The pictures were accompanied by stylized phrases pertaining to the animal. I found it to likely capture the attention of a smaller child while a parent or older sibling could read the longer passage. Colors in headings were coordinated with the shades within the illustration on the page. Each species [...]

I loved this book! And so did my children. This book is full of fun facts about different animals, insects, and birds and their relationship between siblings. My kids really enjoyed the colorful, block-like, collage pictures. It was fun to read about animals you recognized, but maybe didn't know a particular fact about them. Did you know that armadillos always have quadruplet clones?! Additionally, they had a fun facts page at the end of the book that further listed some interesting things about [...]

Glad I'm not a spotted hyena, because my battles with my siblings can often be to the death. But I would love to be a baby cichlid (sick-lid) fish whose mama sets [...]

So many cool facts and of course, the Jenkins' popular signature collages. But I do have a few concerns:notes to self:The conversion from pounds to kg's is wrong for the birth weight of the elephants index and no page numbersIt's mentioned that the New Mexico Whiptail Lizards do not need to mate to reproduce -- but never explained how they actually come up with the next generations!

Steve Jenkins again because I love his books! This one is about siblins in the animal world. I thought it was fascinating. Nine-banded armadillos are always born as identical quadruplets, and New Mexico whiptail lizards have only sisters! Once again, the illustrations are awesome, and kids will have fun learning about animal families. It would be fun to use as a writing launch for their own sibling stories. Maybe as a companion to The Pain and the Great One?

Some animals eat their brothers and sisters. Some animal siblings live together and remain friends for life. Some animals have "step-siblings". Some animals babysit their younger siblings. This is a perfect book for young animal lovers or kids who have siblings. Sibling facts are presented about a bunch of animals, accompanied by paper collage illustrations. At the end of the book, more facts about each animal are presented. An interesting look into the animal kingdom.

Sibling relationships in the rest of the animal world are just as varied as human relationships between sisters and brothers! Did you know that nine-banded armadillos are always born as identical quadruplets? In addition to great descriptions of sibling relationships are wonderful cut and torn paper illustrations. My favorite illustrations are those of Nile crocodiles and wild turkeys. You can browse this book for your favorite animals or read it end-to-end.

A simple book about the relationships of brothers and sisters in the animal kingdom. We learned some interesting things but when it comes to informational books I really prefer actual photographs as opposed to illustrations and the students I polled felt the same way. The votes are as follows: Loved it=169, Liked it=41, Didn't like it=50.
