Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

PreS. First published in 1984 with exquisite pen-and-ink illustrations in black and white, McPhail's small picture book has now been hand colored by John O'Connor in soft-toned watercolors that add gentle warmth without in any way detracting from the simple words and lively, detailed images of the two sisters together. The essence is in the body language, captured by McPhail's delicate cross-hatching, and each page is an idyllic scenario of the girls playing, talking, disagreeing, competing--but always close and loving. The older girl is protective; the little one is full of mischief. But whether they're baking cookies, dressing up in old-fashioned bonnets, or petting a horse, they love each other. For a new generation of sisters, the situations are timeless. Even if the library has the original book, this new one will be a welcome addition. Hazel Rochman

Two sisters, each very different from one another and yet, very similar in other ways.

My two year old daughter loves this book. We have been reading it in preparation for the arrival of our second daughter . The text is simple and straightforward, and the black and white illustrations are plentiful and work well with the text. The overall message of the book is right on: there are differences between sisters and there are some things that they feel the same about, but the bottom line is that they love each other very much.

My two daughters both enjoy this book. It is a sweet tale about two sisters who, although they both don't agree on everything, both agree on the most important thing of all - that they love each other very much! I bought two of these books last year for Christmas for my girls to give eachother and have as keepsakes. I, and they, too, have enjoyed this book immensely.

I have two little girls, and I started reading books about sisters to the older one while we were still expecting her little sister. Not only do both girls love this book now, but they can identify with what is happening...they love to cuddle up in my husband's lap as he reads the book to both of them.

On a more technical note, the illustrations are delightful and warm, full of the joy of being a little kid exploring the world as well as showing the emotions involved in the relationship that is unique to sisters. This is a special book. The pen and ink drawings are easy for little ones to follow and the energy of the pictures draw you in even more.

Can you tell I love this book? I also bought Piggy's Pancake Parlour (daddy makes pancakes every Sunday, so this was a no-brainer to get) and Emma in Charge (our oldest just started preschool).

It is always risky to buy books you have not read for others. Going on how popular it is, I can say about this book that the 3-year-old with a new baby sister to deal with has found it one of her favorites.

Format: Board book
This is the story of two sisters. Sometimes they like the same things, sometimes not. Sometimes they share, sometimes not. They take care of each other, help each other, but best of all they deeply love each other.

The illustrations are done in pen and ink and colored with watercolor. They are colorful, lighthearted and give a sense of fun.

This is a companion book to McPhail's book Brothers which I loved. This is an endearing story about how it should be between sisters. They may not always agree, but they are there for each other and have unconditional love. This is a lovely message and example to pass on. The wording is very simple in this book and it is fairly short making it perfect for very young children and early readers. Recommended for ages 3-7.

Got this book for grown up daughters. I used to read it at them when they were little and would fight. The end always makes my cry- and the girls are 27 and 30 now! One daughter just got a copy for her friend who is expecting her 2nd daughter soon.
