Emma is Jess's little sister ... and her dilemma. How can one small girl be sweet, funny, imaginative, playful, and affectionate as well as a clinging vine, brat, tattletale, and nuisance-all at the same time? Why is Jess supposed to be a good big sister while Emma doesn't have to be a good little sister? The highlights and low points of this sibling relationship are insightfully evoked in short and simple poems, some funny, some touching, and all resonant with emotional truth. Every child with a younger sibling will recognize Jess's dilemma and the combination of ambivalence and deep loyalty that is built into the sibling relationship. Nancy Carpenter's graceful illustrations perceptively complement Kristine O'Connell George's agile poems.

I think this is a great book for children to read parents. Sometimes children have a hard time accepting the fact they have younger siblings, and do not really appreciate them until something bad happens to them. For girls, having a younger sister means they are always in their room, messing with everything they have in their room. The case may be because her little sister wants to be just like her when she grows up. Whatever the case may be, this is a good book for an older, or younger sister to read about the life a sibling in poem. Parents your daughter (s) will connect to this book all too well. If you give this book to them they will sure to not put it down until they are finished, and run and tell all of their friends about the book as well.
