Read an Excerpt

Halmoni and Sunhi walked to Sunhi's parents' room. They peered into Kiju's crib. Kiju was wide awake and playing with his feet. He was a peaceful, handsome baby.

"Kiju is lucky to have you," said Halmoni. "Soon he will be walking and talking. He will follow you around. You will have to teach him to be smart and kind just like you."

Sunhi's face turned red.

"Halmoni, I was stupid and mean. Sometimes I wanted to be an only child again. I have been a bad older sister," said Sunhi.

"Sunhi, that is all right," said Halmoni. "It is hard to get used to having a baby in the house. Sometimes we wish things had not changed. But that doesn't mean we are bad. I know you love Kiju very much. I know you are going to be the best older sister."

Sunhi watched Kiju.

She promised herself that she would give him the best first birthday party ever.

Sunhi is unsettled by the arrival of a baby brother, but with the help of her wise grandmother she learns to appreciate her new role of big sister. This makes me think about Henkes story Julius Baby of the World. These books would be great for a text to text lesson.
