I’ll Always Be Older Than You

Jane Godwin

I’ll teach you to peel bananas,

It’s lucky you’ve got me - I had to learn this on my own.

A big sister marvels at how she will always be older than her baby brother, no matter how much he grows.

A celebration of the bond between siblings from acclaimed author Jane Godwin, with glorious illustrations from Sara Acton.


Being an older sibling can be challenging; patience is required, as the little girl in the book learns.

A little planning doesn’t go astray and so she hops into her little brother’s cot and outlines all the things she will teach him and the activities they will share. Told in verse and accompanied by sweet, simple pictures, this delightful picture book offers a positive, practical and loving look at what early childhood can be like and the huge responsibility of being a big sister. And, of course her little brother will never be older than her, huzzah! For ages 2+.
