Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A sensitive and involving story about the experiences of a young girl, Anna, whose younger sister faces major surgery. Many concerns of the well child are addressed-anger at her parents' preoccupation with the ill toddler; fear that she somehow caused the illness; worries about catching it; and her loneliness when left behind with grandparents or neighbors. Anna takes part in the rehabilitation process-seeing Molly in the hospital, attending sessions for siblings, and participating in physical therapy. Realistic, full-page black-and-white pencil drawings are finely rendered and expressive, and effectively reflect the story's mood and events. The hospital details are few but cover the essentials both in text and pictures. The situations discussed can easily be expanded to cover readers' own experiences. This unique offering will be welcomed by stressed relatives who do not want to overlook the emotional needs of siblings during a difficult time.-Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
