PreSchool-Grade 2–This companion to Reynolds's My Very Big Little World (S & S, 2006) deals with sibling rivalry. The appealing main character, a golden, teddy-bearlike child, is delighted to be celebrating her older brother's birthday with her family. However, when Gramma arrives with Spoke's Remembering Box, which is filled with special items that he has saved each year, SugarLoaf is jealous, especially of the sparkly Best Kid in the World award, given to him before she was born for being especially helpful. She resolves to prove that she deserves recognition just as much as her brother. The next day, she performs a number of good deeds around the house, all of which go awry. Discouraged, she tucks herself into bed, believing that she has ruined her chances to win the coveted ribbon. Much to her delight, her family presents her with the dazzling prize after all, explaining that the effort and heart she put into her well-intentioned mishaps is what counts. The story is written in clear, simple sentences, and the breezy watercolor illustrations depict the child's undertakings with humor and charm. Cozy clothing and furnishings, a contented pet cat, and the characters' expressive faces reflect a happy home's warm and loving atmosphere. Children will identify with SugarLoaf and her desire to be The Best Kid in the World.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA
