From Booklist:

Young kids dream of being as powerful as their older siblings, and at “almost six,” Jack is almost there––except almost means he still messes up quite a bit. He almost rides his big brother’s bicycle, but he ends up crashing into the garbage can, much to his brother’s fury. When Jack almost makes his own breakfast, a gallon of milk spills everywhere, and smoke from the burned toast fills the kitchen. He tries to build a robot, but somehow the remote does not work. Each lively double-page scenario, in pencil lines and bright watercolors, shows a child’s universal dreams, as well as the warm particulars of one kid’s failure, which culminate when Jack almost hits the winning home run, but ducks to avoid the ball at the critical moment. He almost never cries, but when he feels sad, Mom’s warm hug is reassuring. Preschoolers, especially younger siblings, will recognize Jack’s longing for power. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Hazel Rochman
