Follow the Leader

Author: Erica Silverman

First line: Follow the leader. Who should it be? I'm older. I'm bigger. You follow me.

Why you should read this book: Exuberant rhymes and amusing pictures detail the adventures of two young brothers. Although the older brother's imagination is thrilling at first, his bossiness soon drives a wedge into the relationship, until, at last, the younger brother discovers how he can assert himself. A nice solution to sibling rivalry and teaching the concepts of equality and sharing.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You believe firmly in teaching children to follow orders without question.
