Becoming a Brother
Becoming a Brother captures all the complexity and richness of a preschooler's responses to family change. Strictly speaking, four-year-old Simon became a sibling when Asher was born. But role transitions take time, and Simon continued developing his new family role long after Asher came home from the hospital. Here the boy's father, a developmental psychologist, offers a rare view of one child's experience of a common family event.Morton J.
