Julius, Baby of the World

Julius, Baby of the World by Kevin Henkes is a hysterical look at sibling rivalry. Lilly is less than thrilled when her baby brother, Julius arrives. She does everything she can to make him leave, including reciting an insulting story. "If Julius was a number, he would be zero." That stunt earns Lilly a time-out in the "uncooperative chair." But when her cousin makes fun of Julius, Lilly defends him and ultimately learns to love and appreciate him. Kids will understand Lilly's behavior and change of heart and laugh at her antics. Lilly also appears in Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Chester's Way, and Lilly's Big Day.- Xochiquetzal
