I'm Your Peanut Butter Big Brother

by Selina Alko

Published by Alfred A. Knopf, 2009
32 pages
ISBN: 978-0-375-85627-3

Ages 3-6

Big-brother-to-be wonders what his new baby sister will look like. Will she be dark like their “semisweet dark Daddy chocolate bar” or light like their “lemon meringue sunshine” Mommy? Colorful food metaphors accompany the endless possible combinations of features, from brother’s “soft, crunchy billows of cotton candy” hair to Mommy’s “honey-roasted almond” eyes. Alko’s playful and bright gouache and mixed media illustrations offer further possibilities and highlight the diversity of this interracial (Black/white) family.
