Little ones will easily relate to the sister and brother in this charmingly illustrated book, which pictures life as a series of little victories and little disappointments. The children get dressed: (“Sometimes you get to wear what you want. Sometimes you don’t.”); go to school (“Sometimes your friends want to do what you are doing. Sometimes they want to do something else.”); and continue through the day. All too soon it’s bedtime. “Sometimes you have to go right to sleep. . . ” reads the text accompanying a picture showing the girl looking in on her sleeping brother. “But sometimes you don’t,” it continues, as the children read together in bed by flashlight. With the simplicity of Kevin Henkes’ Kitten’s First Full Moon (2004) and crisp white backgrounds á la Elisha Cooper, the cartoonlike art reflects the story nicely, using sharply outlined figures, minimal props, and bright colors for the kids and for the cat that follows them nearly everywhere. Preschool-Grade 2. --Bina Williams
