My Brother Otto, Meg Raby
Piper Crow and her brother Otto like to play together. Otto likes twirling yellow pipe cleaners while he spins, and he likes to play outside, go to storytime at the library, and to sell yellow lemonade to the neighbors. Otto wears the same yellow sweatpants and yellow T-shirt every day and will do naughty things if you try to give him a shirt that is red or pants that are blue. Otto loves to swing higher and higher at Pinecone Park, to eat at the Organic Worm, and to get bear hugs from his dad.
Follow the adventures of this lively little crow and learn that even though he sometimes acts differently than other kids, he is really just a little crow who likes to play, learn, have friends, and be loved—just like you and me! This book is a wonderful tale about how love, acceptance, and a little understanding go a long way in helping us all see the world in a brighter shade of yellow.
