PreS-Gr 1—Matisse is a child who often feels small in a very large world. From being a tiny sunbather on an enormous beach and dancing through the aisles of a big box baby store, the girl discovers that the arrival of her little brother suddenly gives her a very big job. She relishes reading to the baby, assisting her dad with diaper changes, and selecting the baby's wardrobe. The final spread shows the pair cloud-naming back on the shore where her self-evaluation began. Keane's digital illustrations rely on a retro palette and chunky black lines to chronicle the child's shifting perception of herself and her role as a big sister. The artwork is simple in composition but bold and expressive in its use of line and splashes of color. VERDICT A charming, child-focused celebration of becoming an older sibling. For one-on-one and small group sharing.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

Not only is this a beautifully told story, the illustrations alone are worth picking up this book. The illustrations are some of my favorites. They have a old school, retro, Disney style to them, mixed with a bit of The Family Circus, Sunday Comic Strip illustrations I loved as a kid. I love illustrations like this. They have a timeless, cheerful, yet simple feel to them. The simple color scheme, and bold illustrations are perfect for kids!
This is one book I'd definitely recommend picking up!
