I'm Not My Brother! I'm Me, Carson Kobe!, a new book by Debra Powers-Cook, has been released by RoseDog Books.

My dad says, "Leave the lizards and bugs outside like your brother does."

But I say, "I'm not he, I'm me! I like keeping the insects in my room, that's what interests me."

This book tells the story about a younger sibling trying to have his own identity within the world that surrounds him. The younger brother is eight and is constantly mistaken for or compared to his older brother who is ten. He doesn't understand the confusion because he knows that they are clearly two completely different people, and therefore should be seen different.

He goes through life patiently trying to explain to everyone who he is, hoping they would eventually get it, as he frustratingly points out the differences between the two. Lately, his most used sentence has become, "I'm not he, I'm me!"

Mis papa dice, "Déjà los lagartos e insectos afuera como lo hace tu hermano."

Pero digo, "yo no soy el, yo soy ou! Me gusta mantenar los insectos en my habitación que me interesa."

Este libro cuenta la historia sobre la rivalidad entre hermanos, dos hermanos que son dos anos de diferencia. El hermano menor es ocho y es constantemente confundido con o comparado con su hermano mayor, quien es diez. Él va por la vida con paciencia tratando de explicar a todos los que é les, esperanza eventualmente obendrian, como frustraste señala los diferencias entre los dos. Se ha convertido en su frase mis usada, "no soy él, yo soy yo!"
