This is a great story about an only child who finds himself no longer the only child around. It does a fantastic job of showing some of the struggles of adapting to life with a sibling. I really like that it takes you through a journey starting at a new baby, but also some of the frustrations of having a slightly older little sibling who sometimes gets into your stuff and wants to follow you around and wear your clothes. Lest you worry this is only about sibling frustration, fret now—it also brings the reader around to how nice it can be too. In fact, life might actually be a lot more fun with a little person around ;)
