Just Like Me Author:Patricia Lakin, Patience Brewster PreSchool to Grade 2 — "Written in three sections in a somewhat choppy style, this third book about brothers Aaron and Benji might be good for those children just starting to make the transition to chapter books. Aaron is excited about a five-day winter class trip to a farm. Before he leaves, he thinks of how glad he'll be to be away from Benji a... more »nd reads him a whole list of ``Don'ts.'' Although Aaron enjoys the farm and his friends, he also misses Benji. Once home, he shares a special cookie recipe (included at the book's end) and Benji's favorite game--a pillow fight. This is a warm slice of family life made brighter by the large, pleasant, realistic pictures in clean, primary watercolors. Facial expressions are filled with mischief and emotion that convey the close relationships. Both author and illustrator exhibit a touch of light humor and an understanding of children in a story that will be appreciated by younger children."
