Popular Ebook Me and My Little Brain Me and My Little Brain is another fun selection I recently read for the Battle of the Books competition! This is the third book in the popular Great Brain series and, never having read any of the Great Brain books, I didn't know quite what to expect when I picked this one up. A clever little chapter book, Me and My Little Brain tells the story of J.D. who, now that his big brother Tom (otherwise known as the Great Brain) is away attending boarding school, has high hopes for becoming the newest neighborhood "wheeler-dealer". J.D.'s bound and determined to find a way to convince other neighborhood kids to do his chores for him, and he's hell-bent on bamboozling extra money by renting out his brother's bike. But, in his attempt to live up to his big brother's legacy as a swindler, J.D. begins to realize the importance of being his own person and finding what it is that he is good at.This book was a wonderful, light read. It's such a cute story filled with amusing scenarios, and the sibling rivalry theme is one that transcends the ages. Despite the fact that this book takes place in the late 1800s, it would be easily relate-able for all kids trying to live up to an older sibling's notoriety! I think the message emphasizing the importance of being your own person is a terrific one for elementary kids to hear. Definitely a great book to share with your kids!
