My thoughts: A Dozen Cousins is a cute, silly book that focuses on the abundance of testosterone when there is a bunch of boys – albeit, little boys – around. Sweet little Anna is the only “girl” cousin amongst 13. No playing with dolls in this group. It is full of mischief, energy, worms, lizards, rockets, and used up paint supplies.
Anna manages to cope with all this boy-stuff by being a good sport.
Delightfully silly story written in short rhymes brought to life by the colorfully sketched illustrations that show us the full-throttle-all-boy messes and playfulness.

This fun book encourages tolerance and lessons in how to get along at play time.
Look for it in libraries everywhere.
