Oh Brother

Oh Brother! by Nikki Grimes, illustrated by Mike Benny (Greenwillow Books, 2008)

Even though Xavier knows that his parents are better off divorced, when Xavier’s mother remarries, it is difficult to have a new stepbrother who he thinks of as “Mr. Perfect.” In twenty poems, Nikki Grimes shows how strangers eventually become brothers. The collection concludes on a positive note with the following:

A New Song

After this year,
I’ve learned one thing:
Our family
is a song we sing,
and we can add new notes
anytime we like.
