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

Format: Paperback
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.

It is very touching because the sisters are so close.I don't have a sisters but I don't miss a day theat I don't read the book to my cousins I love it!I would read it every day I would read it every day if i had the chance to. I reccomend this book to sisters who are close or best friends. They're different but they love each other.

We all love this book. We received it as a gift when the second was born, and the oldest loved learning what being a sister was going to mean. It celebrates how they can be different but similar in other ways and most importantly love each other. Now that the baby isn't so much of a baby anymore, the oldest still asks to read it every night. We also received "I'm a New Big Sister" when the little one was on the way. Highly recommend both books which together have helped the oldest take on the role of "big sister" as something special. Reading these books is something we look forward to every night. We even take them when we are traveling. Now when I want to take a special photo of them I just say "sisters" and they even know to smile and hug like they do at the end of this book.

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.

As a second daughter and the grand mother of girls, I was delighted with the book . It pointed out how sisters can be different in their abilities and preferences, but alike in their love and care for each other. I plan to give it to my 7 year old granddaughter who is a second daughter and sometimes feels overshadowed by her older sister. (I remember feeling the same way...)

Purchased this book for my sister. I felt that it was written well, but wanted something w/more depth and sentiment. What I wound up doing was inserting pink paper on most of the pages containing my own words as they related to the subject of the printed words on the pages. It was okay, but I would not have purchased it if I had read it previously.

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.
