Ruby doesn’t like her little brother, Oliver, very much. All morning she has begged her mother to come and play with her and the dog Rory. But mother is too busy taking care of Oliver. Ruby decides to come up with a plan to get rid of baby brother. Maybe she can sell him at a yard sale, or make him disappear in a magic act. But her best idea is when she decided to build a rocket ship to send him into space. As she is finishing her rocket, mother comes out to play. Mother convinces her to allow Oliver to join them and they spend a wonderful afternoon together. That evening, Ruby decides she likes her brother after all. Adorable, soft illustrations help tell the story and convey the frustration of the little girl. Children will love the colorful pictures and concepts presented. The story would be perfect for a child struggling with the invasion of a new sibling.
I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
