Brother and sister poems

Brothers & Sisters: Family Poems
by Eloise Greenfield
illustrated by Jan Spivey Gilchrist

Brothers and brothers, sisters and sisters, brothers and sisters - the sibling bond can be a special one. Eloise Greenfield celebrates this specialness with rhyming and free verse poems that span the generations. She says it best in the following excerpt:

Helpful, funny, and good one day,
next day, they get in my way.
Still, I think no matter what,
I'd rather have them
than not.
