From the author of Strictly No Elephants comes an adorable picture book that tells the timeless tale of a little girl who’s on a mission to convince her big sister to play with her!
For Lizzie, the perfect afternoon is one spent playing with her big sister, Jane. But it’s tough being the little sister. Jane is always busy with activities and play dates. And so she hatches the perfect plan to show Jane just how much she loves her. Each day of the week Lizzie works hard sketching and planning, waiting until Saturday when she can reveal her grand surprise to Jane: it’s Sister Day, a celebration of imagination and sisterhood.
This sweet and whimsical story perfectly captures the special bond between sisters.
Lisa Mantchev’s first picture book, Strictly No Elephants, garnered awards and rave reviews and is published in nine countries. The New York Times called it “a sunny, smart, tongue-in-cheek tale.” She is also the author of Sister Day!, which Kirkus Reviews called “sweet, upbeat, and refreshing;” Someday, Narwhal; and Jinx and the Doom Fight Crime. Lisa studied drama at the University of California, Irvine, and now lives on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state with her family. When not scribbling, she can be found on the beach, up a tree, making jam, or repairing things with her trusty glue gun. Visit her website at LisaMantchev.com.
Sweet, upbeat, and refreshing in presenting not a hint of rivalry or meanness. Young readers who enjoy loving sibling relationships in their own families will appreciate finding common ground here and may even pick up an idea or two. Nice for family sharing.
– Kirkus Reviews
Sisters will enjoy this sweet solution to an all too common problem.
