What about parents coping with raising two, three, or more kids at once? Loving Each One Best begins by stating the obvious: Raising kids is hard, and raising more than one at a time is really hard. Nancy Samalin addresses issues that should be obvious but sometimes aren’t: Fighting among sibs is normal and can’t be avoided. Often they are fighting over you—for your attention, to be number one in your eyes—and it’s impossible to make everything equal. The best you can do is to give each kid what he needs when he needs it, and hope it comes out fair in the end.

Although Loving Each One Best is not adoption-specific, the issues of raising multiple children aren’t either. If you’re dealing with generic sibling rivalry, this book is an enjoyable and reassuring guide.

–by Carrie, Claire, Cameron, and Christopher Krueger, who live in the Seattle area.
