Anyone who has siblings knows that sometimes you are not as kind to your siblings as perhaps you should be. But you never know, as the new children’s book My Brother, The Senator (published by WestBow Press) by Lynette Stutzman Carpenter points out, if that sibling will grow up to become someone very important.

Lynette Stutzman Carpenter’s brother grew up to become Congressman Marlin Stutzman, representative of Indiana’s Third District. But as a child, he was just Marlin, Lynette’s brother. In this charming and lighthearted book, Carpenter talks about the typical things that one sibling does to another. The playful tone of My Brother, The Senator accompanied by its vibrant and colorful drawings, tell a story of a pair of siblings that are as all-American as apple pie.

In one section of My Brother, The Senator, Carpenter lovingly and humorously talks about an activity that many people have engaged in at one time or another:

If I had known he’d be a
Senator, I would have
laughed a little harder
when he sang songs in his
underwear. After all, how
often do you see a Senator
singing in his underwear?

My Brother, The Senator provides young readers with a delightful lesson about being considerate and gracious to one’s siblings. The playful and captivating book is sure to delight any reader who has a brother or sister.
