    The illustrations are beautiful and the story is adorable for anyone who has ever had a sibling and not been quite so sure they wanted them hanging around.

    My children absolutely loved this book! The illustrations were so fun and full of surprises that they notice something new every time they read it. The attention to detail is outstanding, and the storyline was so sweet and relatable for my little ones. Looking forward to her next book!

    I have read this book numerous times to my grandchildren. Not only do they enjoy it but I also enjoy it tremendously. The story line is great. The ending promotes family values over things. The illustrations are beautiful. I highly recommend this book.

    An absolutely wonderful children’s book with beautiful illustrations! You can tell a large amount of time was invested into both the story and the illustrations. Great for any child to have in his or her collection! Highly recommended

    This is a sweet, imaginative book that I purchased for my daughter for Christmas as she has a younger brother. She was able to read it to me as a ten year old, and she really enjoyed all the beautiful artwork (as I did as well)! It’s such a nice story and good to remind my children of the book during sibling conflicts! I am also a Mobile therapist and can use this book during sessions with my clients to boost creativity- perspective- and problem solving.

    Before My Brother Came is an absolute delight to read! It’s become a bedtime staple for my son and we always spot something new in the beautiful, colorful illustrations filling the pages. I would highly recommend this book for children of any age and it also makes the perfect gift for siblings expecting a new brother (or sister)!

    Truth and love really shine through. Before my Brother came will have you reminiscing of your childhood. Your littles ones will be captivated with the imaginative illustrations while also feeling relatable to the characters. 10/10 going to buy it again.


This endearing hardback book will delight parents and children alike. Inspired by my own two children, Before My Brother Came is loosely based upon the struggles my daughter faced trying to enjoy her routine activities, after the addition of her energetic, stir-crazed brother brought hair-pulling and heartwarming chaos to our family.

Join “Chloe” in this exhilarating adventure as she discovers an appreciation for the messy joys her little brother brings to everyday life, and sets off to find him and bring him back home, with the final realization that “life is so much better, after my brother came.”
