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!

Reviews

The illustrations, expressive pencil drawings with watercolor washes, are accessible and appealing. A nice addition to the picture-book shelves, this story highlights the positive side as well as the challenges of dealing with younger siblings. -- Booklist Lam captures the earnest relationship between young siblings. Her soft-colored pencil-and-watercolor illustrations flow with little sister's energy. Young readers will relate to the siblings

...Lam's words and drawings offer tangible evidence to the intangible love between siblings. -- Kirkus Reviews Caregivers and children alike will enjoy this book as a way to introduce an important milestone. -- School Library Journal This is gently told yet sharply focused...the details and the dialogue will ring true to any older sib who's tried to travel with a younger one. Colored pencil and watercolor illustrations are clean and uncluttered yet cozy. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
