They Really Like Me
by Anna Grossnickle Hines

"Depicting a familiar sibling scenario, the author has created just the kind of story that will be perfect for families to share. Little brother Joshua tells about being teased by his older sisters, but reassures himself and the young listener that "they really like me." When the girls are left in charge while mother goes to the store, things get a bit scary for Joshua, but only a little bit. Ultimately it becomes clear that his sisters do indeed care for him. Joshua is portrayed as a typically mischievous and annoying little brother, while the older girls are only somewhat mean in retaliation. A small treasure that will comfort younger brothers and sisters."  Hornbook 6/89
