My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother - Polacco

I realize that sibling rivalry is alive and well but I still have yet to understand why books like this are written. This isn't good literature it is encouraging children to be mean. The name calling, the taunting. Books about being kind, courteous, loving help to encourage good sibling relations. Kids don't need any more help in the area of selfish, mean living, that comes naturally. If you are going to read this book please reinforce what these two siblings were doing wasn't very nice and they can have a better relationship than these two did. I don't recommend this book but if you want to you can hear it here:
