Overview

"Somebody else can stay with Sister!" I shouted. And somebody else did.

When a precocious little sister joins his family, the furry hero from Love the Baby and Share with Brother relies on his history of next-to-sterling success in managing sibling relationships to assure him that he will be a lot of help. But who knew? Sister talks all the time, and she plays with boring toys! And little sisters can easily become hurt, afraid, or even lost-especially if they have a tendency to wander. Fortunately, Mommy, Daddy, and even Nana all know just the right rabbit for such an important supervisory role, and "stay with Sister" becomes the family mantra. The question is . . . could "stay with Sister" turn into "play with Sister"? Maybe. As long as nobody finds out!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—The rabbit characters from Love the Baby (2007) and Share with Brother (2011, both Pelican) are back. Brother is tasked with babysitting his younger sibling. He constantly hears the refrain, "Stay with Sister!" until one day he rebels and is punished for his purposeful inattentiveness by being sent to his room. Brother soon regrets his actions when Sister tries to cheer him up, offering a favorite doll and trying to read his favorite book to him. Hilarious cartoonlike illustrations enhance the easily relatable story line. Facial features are expressive as Brother disposes of a stinky diaper or tolerates ear pulls. Words are punctuated with color for many of the phrases that show the boy's personal opinion of a situation ("Sister didn't look very scared to me"; "Sister didn't look very lost to me"). Purchase where the previous titles have been popular.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
