My Brother, Ant by Betsy Byars, illustrations by Marc Simont
This series of stories told from the perspective of Ant’s older brother is a wonderful portrayal of what it is to be a sibling. I was a younger so it was kind of a fun thing to see it from the eyes of the other. The stories range from humorous to sweet but in a way they all say something about what it is to be a kid. Once again timeless illustrations: these kids could be kids in any year and the imaginative moments just make you giggle.
