Nicholas looks up to his big brother, James. James does all kinds of things that only older brothers can do—like write his name, read books, cross the street, and ride the school bus. But there’s one thing James doesn’t do: take a nap. Because big brothers don’t take naps. James assures Nicholas that someday he’ll be able to do all the things James does. And when the brothers begin to share a very special secret, it looks like that special day may be approaching very soon….

Nick is a little brother who has an amazingly patient and caring big brother, James. He helps him and plays with him constantly. But James doesn't have to take a nap, even on the weekends. But then Nick's mother has a little girl, Grace, and he becomes a big brother too.A cute story for young children who are getting a new sibling. Also a great example for big brothers, too, who might be struggling with helping out their little siblings. A very nice read.
