Item Description...
Can brothers and sisters really be best friends? Yes. Co-written by real-life siblings Sarah, Stephen and Grace (ages 22, 16, 12) and illustrated by their cartoonist dad, this lighthearted volume offers perceptive insights and practical tips on how kids in the same family can forge lifelong supportive relationships as God intended.

Publishers Description
Brothers and sisters are among the most important people in life Yet often they are also the most trouble. Many siblings fight, argue and miss out on the close relationship that God intends. The problem is not just the surface battles but the underlying attitudes, wrong concepts and offenses. Many broken relationships never get fixed. Few enjoy the special life-long treasure that God intended. The emphasis of this book is not merely "getting along" but being best friends. It includes lots of humor, many stories and helpful insights. Every chapter has a section by each of the three authors giving the book three perspectives and three personalities. This book has sold more than 65,000 copies. It is also available in Spanish. "This painfully honest, hilarious book offers a creative look at how to build relationships between siblings." -- Beall Phillips, Vision Forum "A tool every family needs." -- Dr. Jim Logan, International Center for Biblical Counselling "Worth it's weight in gold " -- Old Schoolhouse Magazine

Fun Read  May 16, 2007
This book was really fun to read. The 16 yr old boy was really funny. It really made me think about the future. I mean, I'm not getting rid of my 3 brothers any time soon, so I probably need to learn how to deal with them. It might be helpful if we can live together for the next 5 yrs at least without always biting each others' heads off.
If you have more than one child, you need this book!  Mar 31, 2007
If you are a Christian family, especially, with more than one child, you need this book! My kids are loving this one. I read it aloud to them and they never want me to stop. The book is written by the children, for the children, so it speaks to them in a way that I can't. Excellent information, well worth the money - good buy!
Helpful and entertaining  Apr 12, 2006
I was loaned this book by a mother of eleven, so I thought it might be worth reading. The book is written by three homeschooling siblings: girl age 22, boy age 16, and girl age 12. They take turns writing on the same topic. The book is filled with humorous family stories which help to illustrate the points they are making. Their father illustrated the book, so there are plenty of homespun pictures to keep your interest.

The book begins with a general overview of WHY it is important to want to have your brother or sister as your best friend. When I began reading it myself, I thought, "Dull. Why doesn't this book move faster?" But, as I have been reading it aloud to my kids, I see that it moves just fast enough to convict, but not so fast to overwhelm.

The book continues with talking about how doing big things for God requires us to begin by doing "little things" for our siblings, how different people view the world differently, and covers the topics of forgiveness, humility, birth order, praising one another, and truly building friendships. It's a logical progression with more and more practical ideas as the book goes on.

The book is geared for a Christian audience, although not necessarily a homeschool one. It makes a great read aloud as you can read a whole chapter (long) or one of the three sections (shorter) or even part of the shorter sections each day. There are plenty of useful lists which you can read aloud to your children to help them to remember what it is that a servant would do, etc.

Once I finished reading my borrowed copy, I got online and ordered my own! I have seen changes in my children since we started the book, but it's not been a magic wand. Sigh. I wish I could get one of those from this site...
Very Helpful!  Oct 24, 2005
My oldest daughter (age 9) has always been very selfcentered. Reading this book together has helped her realize the plan God has in her life with her little sister. Sometimes the lessons are not easy for her to swallow but she seems to understand them better after hearing from the Mally children.
Rather insightful and thought provoking  Mar 19, 2005
This book is written by 3 brothers and sisters and gives interesting insight into how different we are from one another! THe book jumps around a bit, (I mean, it is written by kids), but it has sound advice about having a conscience clear of offenses between you and your siblings as well as a servant's attitude. I liked that it discussed birth order as well. I was afterward quite inspired to work on my friendship with my siblings and not just learn to "get along" but to truly grow into becoming best friends!
