Sam Vole and his Brothers by Martin Waddell & Illus by Barbara Firth

This book is written by the team responsible for Can't You Sleep Little Bear? It is gentle and cute.

But let's talk about asters for just a quick minute. Aren't they fabulously poufy and cloudlike? I love them!

Sam Vole has two older brothers who do everything just a little better than he does. Which is annoying. 

Not to be judgmental to other women, but I really do not know what is going on with Sam's Mom's hair. Not the best look for her.

Sam earnestly trying to out do his brothers.

One night he decided to get up early so his brother's couldn't possibly know what he was doing and come do it better.

He sets off on his very own.

Fabulous freedom!

Abounding joy!

Until he realizes he doesn't quite know where he is. Oops. 

Then he sees his brothers. And graciously agrees to go along with them. 

Bringing their bounty home to their mother. 

This is a great book about the unfairness of being little. No matter how you try, you just can't do things as well as older people. But sometimes, that is okay.
