"The Frances books have all been favorites in my family! This is one of that priceless series - here, Frances is torn between jealousy and generosity, as her sister Gloria's birthday approaches. For other great Frances & Gloria reads, check out BEST FRIENDS FOR FRANCES, and A BABY SISTER FOR FRANCES."
Sheila Rae, the Brave
Sheila Rae, the Brave
"Sheila Rae is not afraid of anything. She walks backwards with her eyes closed, steps on every crack, growls at stray dogs, and bares her teeth at stray cats. But when Sheila Rae becomes lost on the way home from school, it is her "scaredy cat" sister, Louise, who shows her a thing or two about bravery and sibling love. A Henkes classic!"
Sarah's Room
Sarah's Room
"A very tiny book with illustrations by Maurice Sendak, about young Jen who desperately wants to enter her older sister Sarah's beautiful room and play - but the door has been locked since the day she made a mess in there. A lovely story about sisters growing up, getting along."
