Two lovable dogs who become brothers and must learn how to sit, stay, and play nice with each other.

Transitions are never easy, and adding a new brother or sister to one’s family can leave children a little confused and very rebellious.

Author Kimberly Sentek hopes to ease the minds of parents and children alike in her new story told by two characters in “Oh Brother!: A Nico and Tugger Tale” (published by Trafford Publishing).

In the book, Sentek tells the tale of Nico and Tugger – two lovable dogs who become brothers and must learn how to sit, stay, and play nice with each other. Her motivation to write the story hit very close to home.

“When I got my second dog and saw how the two interacted together, I thought it paralleled how children act with each other,” Sentek says.

The story unfolds from each dog’s perspective, which will help children learn how to adapt to a new sibling and understand opposing points of view.

“It is a gift to have a sibling; I hope the book helps children understand this and shows them that everyone can fit in the family, even if it doesn’t seem like it at times.”
