One of my friends recently expressed gratitude for "life scouts" in his life—he wasn't talking about an official scouting program, rather about his siblings, who had gone before and "scouted" out life for him, so that he had a little more information when his turn came along. There are bumps along the road with any sibling relationship, as there are in any meaningful relationship, and at their worst siblings can appear to have no purpose in life other than to make your own difficult. However, at their best, they are your sworn protectors, fiercest allies and best friends. Luckily, the balance of a lifetime shift siblings role closer to "best friends" than "worst enemies," as long as siblings are putting in the effort along the way to forgive and remember they love each other. These are some of our favorite children's books showing sibling dynamics—they provide meaningful ways to talk about how to deal with different situations with siblings and keep an eye on what matters most!
