KIRKUS REVIEW

A paean to sisterhood captures the girls at, mostly, their sweetest in bright, crisp full-color photographs. A simple bit of verse accompanies the interactions of four pairs of siblings; the words, “Big Sister and I, racing hand in hand./Little Sister picks the biggest pumpkin in the land,” are complemented by scenes of the girls trooping through the woods and poking through the pumpkin patch. What is plain is the happiness coming off the pages as the twosomes share a book or a bite of food, an overcoat or some puddle-jumping, a book or a jump rope. Onlookers will identify with the infrequent episodes of conflict, in which tears run and hair is pulled, some of which appear a little staged; outweighing those are scenes that delight, moments of pure companionship to make other siblings smile. (Picture book. 4-8)
