Soupy Saturdays With the Pain and the Great OneDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
Favorite author Judy Blume perfectly captures kids' feelings in these seven warm-hearted stories that offer a peek into the important relationship between a brother and sister. Meet the Pain: My sister's name is Abigail. I call her the Great One because she thinks she's so great. It's fun to make her mad. Who cares if she's in third grade and I'm just in first? That doesn't make her faster. Or stronger. Or even smarter. I don't get why mom and dad act like she's so special. Sometimes I think they love her more than me. Meet the Great One: My brother's name is Jacob Edward but everyone calls him Jake. Everyone but me. I call him the Pain because that's what he is. He's a first grade pain. And he will always be a pain--even if he lives to be one hundred years old. Even then, I'll still know more about everything. That's just the way it is. I don't get why mom and dad act like he's so special. Sometimes I think they love him more than me.
