About the Author
Author Sheri Garland York was born and raised in the beautiful Northeast Georgia Mountains in Rabun County where she still resides. She attended Rabun Gap Nacoochee High School; she received her BS degree and her Master's degree in Early Childhood from North Georgia College and State University. Later in life, Sheri graduated from Brenau University with a Specialist Degree in Early Childhood.
Sheri retired from teaching in June 2008 upon teaching 30 years for the Rabun County School System. Over half of her life has been spent teaching kindergarten through second grade children. Her biggest reward as teacher was watching a child's eyes sparkle as they began to read.
The most fulfilling joy and blessing of her life has been raising her three children--Dallas, Isaac, and Hannah. It was so rewarding watching her children grow and develop the strong bond they still share today. Sheri and her children are a very close family and enjoy spending time together as often as possible.
I thought the story itself was very cute. I have 2 sons and a younger daughter and the story definitely rings true to life as well. I appreciated the sentiment behind the words and the reading level is perfect for young kids. I was not a big fan of the illustrations however. My 7 year old thought that the brothers looked "mean" sometimes. I think my children would have enjoyed the story more if the illustrations had been a little more appealing. The picture on the front makes the book seem more like a family scrapbook than a children's book.
