BigLittleBrother

Minnesota Historical Society Press
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

This charming interactive storybook app for kids ages 3-7 with text and audio by Kevin Kling and illustrations by Chris Monroe traces a familiar arc from sibling rivalry to brotherly love.
Being an older brother has its benefits, of that there’s little doubt. But how would you feel if your little brother grew to be bigger than you? And what if he insisted on touching all your things and following you everywhere you went? It’s enough to frustrate the most even-keeled of kids.
The narrator of Big Little Brother wants nothing more than to escape his brother’s sticky fingers. Then an encounter at the Old Woman in the Shoe play area involving a bully, a plastic turkey, and his big, little brother teaches him that a pesky younger sibling can actually be a pal.
Big Little Brother features audio by storyteller Kevin Kling, described as “one of our great national treasures” by public radio personality Krista Tippett. Many of the intricate illustrations by Chris Monroe hold extra dialogue and audio, available at a touch: spin the Tinkertoy wheel, put the turkey in the oven, turn out the lights. Hundreds of interactive details will surprise children (and adults) through many readings of Big Little Brother.
“An exceptionally funny and bittersweet book that any reader, young or old, who has been an older sibling will warm to.” --New York Times (Refers to the print edition.)
