My Little Sister Doris product reviews

When Baby Doris arrives, Little Croc decides she is the most annoying little sister ever. She wakes him up in the night, she scribbles on his pictures and she spoils his favourite toys. But luckily Little Croc's older brother Boris is there to show Little Croc that being a big brother can actually be fun.

I have never read any kids books by Liz Pichon so was thrilled to be able to review this one. I am all for books with morals, or kids books that tell a real story that they can relate to. This is exactly what this book My little sister doris was all about. Totally relateable to any child who has an older and/or younger sibling, From the frustrations of having to take turns and share toys, to having their toys ripped and broken, it is all relateable and relevant to many children today.

The children at my daycare LOVED the bright colours and the illustrations and each page when you said who has this happened to, they could put up their hands and share a story from at home where their older/younger brother/sister had done something similar in the story. I think when a child can relate to something they are more than likely to remember, and in this case, a number of children remembered it and wanted it read over and over again. It is now one of the books that has to be read daily.

I personally think its a great book and the illustrations are simple yet very effective. The colours are bright and attractive which catch your eye and keep you hooked. I am looking forward to buying some of Liz Pichons other books for the children.

We have recently discovered the joy of Liz Pichon and this is the third book I have read of hers. We own the My Big Brother Boris book, and so I was very excited to get a hold of My Little Sister Doris. I assumed that Little Croc from the first book was Doris, but that was wrong.

This book is about the same family as in the Boris book. Little Croc gets a new sibling, and this time it's a little sister called Doris. Let's just say, he is not at all thrilled. I imagine that the scenario in this book is very normal for lots of first and second born children all over the world. It covers so many different things in such a sensitive but quick way as well.

For example, Little Croc suddenly finds that he can't do any of the things he use to be allowed to. As a parent, I know the frustration of the loud and daredevil older sibling. But as an older sibling I also know the frustration of being asked to change your behaviour for an usurper. The sharing of the room was one I haven't experienced but I could well imagine how difficult it would be. And no one asks the older one if they are happy.

Many times reading through this book with my eldest, I really felt for Little Croc. I think that Pichon captures really well that sense that no one cares or is listening. That tragic feeling that any child gets when they are ignored or blamed for something they didn't do. It made me feel more aware of my words around my children too. Making sure there is real fairness with the two of them can be difficult, but this made me think about putting myself in their shoes more and seeing things from their side.

The illustrations in this, just make the story. They are so bright and vibrant. They really pop on each screen. Plus there are little speech bubbles to read too. I loved the layout and my daughter found the comic style parts easy to follow and read too.
