Big Brother, Little Brother
The Reviews Are In...
"In a photo-essay bursting with spontaneity and good humor, Curtis captures several pairs of young brothers horsing around, ... playing pranks, sharing and competing - but always obviously having a whale of a time. Like its companion Big Sister, Little Sister(2000), this can't help but generate smiles, laughter, and good feelings from children and parents alike".
Booklist, May 15, 2004
"Curtis's bright, colorfully photographed spreads evoke unforgettable moments. This title will be a reassuring vehicle to promote warm and positive relationships".
School Library Journal, July 2004
"This book features many of the moments that make childhood fun. This would make a great gift book for two brothers that are playmates".
Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
"This gathering of brothers - sharply etched, bright photographs of pairs of them, younger and older, multicultural - celebrates harmony with nary a discord in sight (minor differences of opinion are of the most benign sort). Simple, rhymed couplets describe the images with an air of lazy-day pleasure. Why bicker when there's enough room on the skateboard for two and a frosted donut for every mouth"?
Kirkus Reviews 4/15/04
"Color photos of pairs of brothers involved in various activities provide an eye-catching tribute to brotherly love".
Horn Book Guide 10/1/04
