Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool--"In the morning my big sister Kyla stands at the window, tapping at the birds. I do like Kyla . . . ." So be gins a day of follow the leader between a young child and her older sister. This simply told story highlights such every day events as eating oatmeal and walk ing to the store, aptly capturing a small child's sense of pleasure in imitating an older sibling. There is a nice twist on the last page; before going to bed, the younger sister taps on the window, and Kyla follows suit. The illustrations, done in richly colored oils, often add excitement by use of interesting per spectives. For example, readers see the children from above as they march home stepping in their own snowy foot prints. Unfortunately, in the pictures of Kyla, her expression is sometimes awkward and difficult to read. She looks angry, although there is no indi cation in the text that she ever loses patience with her sister. Despite this in congruity, the story will certainly strike a chord with many young listeners. A universal story that features a warm and loving black family.

Anyone who has ever had a brother or sister (or raised a few) knows how much younger children like to copy their older siblings. "Do Like Kyla" is a comfortable tale of one day in the life of two sisters. The younger follows the older through each step of their routine, painting a warm picture of closeness. My daughter enjoyed the simple text and colorful pictures of ordinary family life.

What a lovely book! Believe it or not, our granddaughter's name is Kyla, and her little sister does just like the little sister in the book - imitating her big sister. This book has beautiful, happy, colorful pictures of the sisters doing all sorts of fun things together. It's focus is positive and strongly supports the joys of having a big sister (or little sister) to share everday events with. Also, kudos for portraying children of color in a strong family setting, enjoying the company of each other in the "little things" of a daily routine. It also strongly portrays an older sibling being a loving "good example" to their younger sibling and the younger sibling being eager to follow suit. A good thing, indeed.

The close relationship of the sisters is carefully written, and it always tears me up at the end when Kyla copies her baby sister instead of the other way around. And I love the natural, unforced language - your child will emulate *your* speech, not the speech of book characters.

I absolutely love this book. I purchased it online, after seeing it in my local library. I brought it for my niece her name is Kyla.
It was her 17th birthday and she is doing great things. She is a positive example to her younger sister and cousins!

Beautiful Book.
