I just love Spencer! He is strong & fast & loud! And then…he is quiet. And gentle because Spencer has become a brother! A great book for families expecting their second child.
Does having a new brother or sister make you into MORE than you already are?
Spencer is about to find out.
He's as strong as a bear, as funny as a monkey, and as wild as a tiger. But on one special day, everything changes. Now Spencer is strong, funny, wild, brave, free . . . and gentle, too.
