School Library Journal
PreS--`` In the morning my big sister Kyla stands at the window, tapping at the birds. I do like Kyla . . .'' So begins a day of follow the leader between a young child and her older sister. This simply told story highlights such everyday events as eating oatmeal and walking to the store, aptly capturing a small child's sense of pleasure in imitating an older sibling. There is a nice twist on the last page; before going to bed, the younger sister taps on the window, and Kyla follows suit. The illustrations, done in richly colored oils, often add excitement by use of interesting perspectives. For example, readers see the children from above as they march home, stepping in their own snowy footprints. Unfortunately, in the pictures of Kyla, her expression is sometimes awkward and difficult to read. She looks angry, although there is no indication in the text that she ever loses patience with her sister. Despite this incongruity, the story will certainly strike a chord with many young listeners. A universal story that features a warm and loving black family. --Karen James, Louisville Free Pub . Lib . , KY

    I LOVED THIS BOOK!

    After my daughter Miah was born I found this book. Her big sister's name is Kyla and I thought it was PERFECT. To this day it's one of their favorite books to read to each other. :0) They're 4 and 7 now!
