Synopsis

My Little Sister and Me by Maple Lam

It's a big job when a big brother gets to take his little sister home from school for the very first time. In debut author-illustrator Maple Lam's charming story, she celebrates the incredible relationship between a little boy and his younger sister. Similar to books like I'm a Big Brother by Joana Cole and What Brothers Do Best by Laura Numeroff, this book is perfect to read with both older and younger siblings, as well as with youngsters getting ready for back-to-school!
