A Song for My Sister by Lesley Simpson

When she was little, she threw her pennies in the wishing well and made a wish.  It took four years for her wish to come true.

Random House Books for Kids sent me this picture book for review (thank you).  The book has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

She was so excited to get her new sister, but then all she did was cry all the time.  For eight days straight, she cried.  Even on her "simchat bat", her welcome to world and her naming day.  Mira is still thrilled to have a new baby sister and she sings to her on naming day.  Imagine everyone's surprise when the baby settles down and sings too!

This is a sweet tale with colorful illustrations.  I just loved the last two pages where the sisters are singing together and I know you will, also.  It's just too cute.

Happy reading.

What a great story of love between sisters. It can be hard when a little one is born into the family and you lose your place as first born. How cool the singing not only settles down the little one, but that they start singing together. Wow how cool!
