Oh Brother! A Nico and Tugger Tale
Nico and Tugger are brothers, and each has a story of how they came to be. The first half of the book is Nico's story--he was an only dog and things were just fine until his parents brought home Tugger. Nico must learn to live with Tugger and eventually love him, because that's how siblings are. The second half of the book is Tugger's story--he is an innocent pup brought home to his new family, and he is beside himself to have a sibling! Tugger must learn to respect the boundaries of the relationship with his new brother.
Together these stories explore the meaning of family relationships. No matter how much your brother or sister drives you nuts, they are your family and you love them no matter what. I adore the illustrations in this book--the dogs are just too stinkin' cute. I love how similar yet how different they look, and I smiled through the whole book. What a great gift this is for a young child expecting a new baby brother or sister. Watch out, friends! You know what gift is coming your way soon...
