In my fantasy family life, it would be all love and unity all the time between my four little girls.

Unfortunately, my fantasy life and my real life don’t always match up.

There are frequent squabbles and sibling rivalries and tears. So. Many. Tears.

Of course, for me, the answer is almost always to turn to a book, and it’s been really helpful to find books that show sibling relationships.

And not just the warm and fuzzy moments, but the lows too.

These twelve books explore all sides of the sibling dynamic and have been wonderful for gently introducing delicate conversations about how we want our family relationships to grow and develop.

What other books about the ups and downs of siblinghood would you add to this list?
