Does anyone know of any good kids' books that promote caring and getting along with siblings?  My kids do have a lot of tenderness to each other at times, but tend to fight a lot as well.  Things get physical with them very, very quickly.  When playing with other kids they both act very differently and are much kinder and patient so I'm pretty sure this is a sibling issue.


I have Siblings Without Rivalry for me, which I need to re-read, but would love some kids' books that I can read to them that model good sibling behavior, or can help them (especially the 5-year-old) problem-solve sibling issues without hitting, or help the 5-year-old deal with the fact that it isn't fair that I have different expectations and rules for her younger brother. 


We have some books that deal with the new baby, and those worked well for DD, but don't really fit our situation anymore.

Me First! is a sweet book about sibling competition and feelings.

 I will think of some others, but that is one of my littles favorites. :)
