"Oh Brother!: A Nico and Tugger Tale" by Kimberly Sentek ~ Book Review

Book Description:

Transitions are never easy, and adding a new brother or sister to one’s family can leave children a little confused and a lot rebellious. Author Kimberly Sentek hopes to ease the minds of parents and children alike in her new story told by two characters in Oh Brother!: A Nico and Tugger Tale (published by Trafford Publishing).

In her book, Sentek tells the tale of Nico and Tugger – two loveable dogs who become brothers and must learn how to sit, stay, and play nice with each other. Her motivation to write the story hit very close to home.

“When I got my second dog and saw how the two interacted together, I thought it paralleled how children act with each other,” Sentek says.

The story unfolds from each dog’s perspective, which will help children understand differing points of view and learn how to adapt to a new sibling.

“It is a gift to have a sibling; I hope the book helps children understand this and shows them that everyone can fit in the family, even if it doesn’t seem like it at times.”

About the Author, Kimberly Sentek:

Kimberly pens a wonderful book for children that addresses sibling rivalry. The story is told from both sides which is a rarity since most books only tell one persons point of view. With Kimberly's story line and the terrific illustrations done by Eumir Carlo Feranadez, this book is relate-able to everyone that has siblings. Highly recommended for all pre-schoolers.

I give "Oh Brother!: A Nico and Tugger Tale" a 5 star rating.
