About the BookTransitions 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.”

My Take on the Book
This is a great story that deals with the issue of sibling rivalry in a fun way that all readers can enjoy. My eldest daughter has always had an issue with having a younger sister, and this book definitely encompassed the issues that we have been dealing with in our home for the last five years. I read this to both of them and they seemed to like it. After we had a good conversation about what the main characters in this story went through. I know that reading this book only once will not change the way that they feel toward each other, but it is a start and the conversations that it spurs is even better and will definitely help in the long run!
