The Sister Exchange by Kevin McNamee

Kevin McNamee's new book The Sister Exchange is going to help mothers from across the globe enlighten their children on just how precious and unique the bond between siblings really is. I think every home with siblings would benefit from this book and would suggest it as a baby shower gift for the big brother or sister of newborns. It would also be a great addition to a church library as a resource for young families.

The Sister Exchange has more depth than your average children's picture book. It meets an emotional need that an older sibling might not be able to express, but Mr. McNamee does an excellent job of using humor to teach just how sacred and eternal family relationships really are.

Heartstings will be tugged when the little souls in your life read about how big sister Brianna wants a new and improved little sister rather than Julianne, the one she has been given. Her wise mother listens intently, goes along with Brianna's request and makes a quick phone call to The Sister Exchange. Families will roar together with laughter when they read about the possible prospects The Sister Exchange offers Brianna.

Another favorite part of The Sister Exchange for me was Kit Grady's amazing illustrations. They are sooooo adorable you want to frame them and hang them on your wall. There's something about Brianna and Julieanne's faces that will capture the hearts of children of all ages.

Oh, this sounds like a wonderful book. My girls fight like cats and dogs, and I keep trying to explain to them how special it is to have a sister.

I'll have to take a look into Kevin's book.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Dixie.
