Custom What Big Brother Does Best Book

Show big kids how lucky they are to have a little brother or sister with this cheerful personalized book.

$34.99

Oh, Brother!

Kids sometimes see the arrival of a new baby in the family as a cause for jealousy, but this charming, customized hardcover book can help those new big brothers see how they fit in the picture. Written by Laura Numeroff, author of If Your Give a Mouse a Cookie, the book explains all the things a big brother can do for his little siblings. Big bro will be delighted to see his name appear on the cover and throughout the story, along with a special dedication message from you on the front page.

The book is written as if regaling the new sibling with all the loving things the older child will do. This helps to model positive sibling interaction without feeling preachy, and also provides an opportunity for big brothers to share the book once the little one is old enough to enjoy story time.

The pages are warmly illustrated by Lynn Munsinger, with cute tigers, bears, pigs having adventures with their little brothers or sisters. Printed in the USA.

I gave this gift at a baby shower, as a gift to the older brother, in addition to a gift for the new baby. It was a huge hit. The mom was thrilled to have something to help her first child fell important, and loved that the story is personalized. My only disappointment was with the font on the dedication page indicating the gift was from me.It was in bright red and huge block letters - it was overpowering. The book is not supposed to be about me, but about the child. If I order this again I will either skip that or simply say "For Joe Jones".

My husband and I bought this book for a friend's son who is about to become a big brother. We were very disappointed in the quality of the book. The front cover is faded and has a large wrinkle across the middle. It looks like I made it on my home printer. Very annoyed, particularly because it took several weeks to arrive and now I do not have time to return/replace it. This is an adorable gift idea and we were excited about it, but I would never recommend this to anyone.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Custom What Big Brother Does Best Book:

        Very impressed with the quality of the book. We bought it as a gift for our firstborn who is 2 and a half and very excited to soon become a big brother, so it is perfect for him. The book is pricey in AUS $ (which was fine given it is custom made) but the shipping costs almost made me not purchase (it cost just as much to ship as the book itself) but in the end I'm glad I did.
