    I am a leader for Children’s Ministry at a church and we are always looking for books that kids will relate to, but also clean fun! This book draws you in by the wonderful illustrations and is a wonderful book for children. The author is pretty amazing too!

    This book is so beautifully written with beautiful pictures to match! My children loved reading this as much as I did!

    Just the sweetest message of love after gaining an unexpected (dare I say unwanted!) new sibling! I was thrilled to find this after two happy granddaughters ungraciously learned a baby brother was on the way! The story opened up dialogue with Mommy and Daddy and paved the way to their changes of heart. Both girls are enamored with the colorful and whimsical illustrations as well. They love looking at the pictures over and over. Looking forward to the next Sarah Mishler book since this one was a total home run!!

    When I read this book I was so taken with the reality it possess. Any family with two or more children would appreciate the child’s view of her little brother. It is beautifully illustrated. It made me smile. I purchased the book to read to my nieces and nephews and put it in their library. I believe parents would be drawn to this book and appreciate the values it upholds. I am excited for her next book and all to come from this writer.

    This book is fabulous and well worth the buy. The illustrations are excellent and the story has a lot of substance and meaning to any family. My daughter (9) and son (6) have both enjoyed it – we read it often.

    Beautifully written, with illustrations that will enchant young and old alike, “Before My Brother Came” celebrates family bonds and the power of imagination. It belongs on every child’s bookshelf alongside “Goodnight Moon” and “Harold and the Purple Crayon.”

    Great book- love the illustrations!


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.”
