My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother by Patricia Polacco

My eight year old daughter choose to listen to My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother last night from one of our favorite online story sites, Storyline Online. I think she chose it because she doesn't get along as well with her ten year old brother as she does with her twin brother.

You can find this story read by Melissa Gilbert at Storyline Online. The story probably won't keep the attention of children under 5 years of age. I don't want to give away the end, but it has a happy ending with the siblings feeling love for each other.
Everyone in our family including my son and daughter know they love each other. They just rub each other the wrong way sometimes. Do you have this problem with any children in your family? Do you have a reaction to this story? Let us know in a comment or join in a discussion.

Patricia Polacco has written many other books. Appelemando's Dreams is written by Patricia Polacco. It has been a favorite read aloud around our house for years.

  1. I love Patricia Polacco's books! When I taught second grade, Thundercake was one of our stories we taught.
    I like this book because I can relate, being the middle child in my family, and I can use it with my children when they get older. (4 year old son, 2 year old twins)
    We all need a good story about siblings!
