Whether your younger sibling is on the way or is 30 years old, it’s never too early or too late for Little Miss, Big Sis

Little Miss is ready to be a fantastic big sis. She tackles the diapers and drool with enthusiasm, dinner and mini-disasters with panache. She becomes baby’s best cheerleader, fort-builder, tear-drier, playmate—truly a big sis.

With numerous best-selling titles to both of their names, Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Peter H. Reynolds have complementary styles that make their books stand out on the shelf—and in readers’ hearts. Rosenthal (Little Pea) makes the most of every word; her precise rhyming language imitates a young child’s speech pattern and keeps the message focused. Reynolds (Ish) is the master of charming, colorful sketches that entice the eye. While having a new baby in the house can be overwhelming, Reynolds’ skilled, kid-friendly illustrations present big changes in a cozy and approachable manner.

Little Miss, Big Sis is an excellent “big sibling” book for its simplicity and adorable, non-gushy sentiment. Being a big sis brings all kinds of excitement and adventure; it should also come with this book.
