Cherish your siblings!

Hey YAs,

Today is Brothers and Sisters Day.  It's a day to really think about what your brothers and/or siblings mean to you!  Sometimes they're annoying sure, but they can really be great some times too.  So today, do something with your brothers and/or sisters.  Maybe make some cookies, exchange cards, or just watch a favorite TV show or movie together. :) 

Here are some books about brothers and sisters:

Rage: A Love Story by Julie Anne Peters

Belle Boy: A Sister in the Rebel Ranks by Anne Fuller
