3 Great Books for a Jealous Sibling

Ever since Infant Monkey was born, Preschooler Monkey has been jealous. The jealousy has been getting better with time, and I’ve noticed something that helps is reading books about siblings or even just babies in general (especially crying babies!).

We’ve read a bunch of them, and maybe I’ll do a “best of” post someday, but here are a few that we’ve read recently that my daughter has enjoyed.

A book about a girl learning how to help out with her brother:

Lola Reads to Leo by Anna McQuinn; Illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw


A book about a boy who is jealous of his brother, but comes around:

When I Was King by Linda Ashman; Illustrated by David McPhail

A book about a crying baby who won’t be soothed (HILARIOUS!):

The Baby that Roared by Simon Puttock; Illustrated by Nadia Shireen
