Packed with practical guidance pitched just right for school-age children, Dr. Huebner’s Sibling Survival Guide fills a critical need in the literature. The book avoids feeling preachy while inviting children into more effective ways of living with irksome siblings. Those who know Huebner’s other work will immediately recognize her practical wisdom, warmth and humor. Those who don’t are in for a treat. A must-have for anyone who lives or works with siblings who squabble.Eileen Kennedy-Moore, PhD, author of Growing Friendships (for kids) and Kid Confidence (for parents)
