KIRKUS REVIEW

An excited Korean-American girl seems a bit disenchanted with her new baby sister until she imagines the fun she's going to have as a big sister. Right now, the baby may be very good at making a lot of noise, but she's not much of a playmate. She's just too little to eat things like spicy Korean kimchee or spaghetti or popcorn. She can't ballet dance, or play dress-up or paint with colors. What good is she? But when the baby gets bigger, the possibilities are endless. The big sister visualizes how someday she'll be able to teach her little sister to dance and sing and lick an ice cream cone. She fantasizes swinging with her little sister, reading funny stories with her and even eating kimchee together. Now all the big sister has to do is to wait. Bold and brilliant collage, ink and pastel illustrations expressively capture the big sister's emerging attachment for her little sister. Perfect for families introducing new babies to older siblings. (author's note) (Picture book. 4-8)
