Big Red Lollipop is about an immigrant family whose eldest daughter, Rubina, is invited to a birthday party. She is forced by her mother to take Sana, her younger sister. Sana does not play the games right at the party and eats all of the party favors because of her age. As a result, Rubina is not invited to any more birthday parties for a long time. When Sana is invited to a party of her own, Rubina interviews to ensure that Sana is not forced to take their baby sister. Sana brings Rubina a large lollipop home from the party, and they are friends.This is an endearing book about cultural misunderstanding and sisters. I think many children from all cultures will be able to identify with Rubina as she tries to explain that little sisters don't go to birthday parties. Rubina's mother wears a head scarf throughout the entire book. The books does an excellent job of being multicultural without being preachy. The cultural misunderstand is central to the book, yet is handled gently and subtly. I also really liked how several pictures were drawn from above, almost like a map.I think this book would be an excellent read around book to preface a writing prompt about sibling challenges or feeling misunderstood.

This is a cute story about a little girl and her struggle with the cultural differences between her family and social norms of America. A great book to show kids about different cultures and accepting differences.

This was one of the childrens favorite read alouds. The studnets with younger siblings could particularly appreciate the older sisters frustration over her triangle lollipop. They were delighted in the end that the sisters became dear friends and looked out for each other.

There's no greater pleasure for a grammie to hear than that her little grandgirl loved the new book chosen for her. Especially when Grammie is so careful to build Hadley's young library with her. If Hadley says it's a very good book and she wants to hear it read over and over to her, then it gets high marks indeed! This one is a "Grammie Alert" book. We're happy with this inclusive cultural theme, beautiful illustrations and charming characters. Highly recommended for 4-7 yr. olds. Grammie & Hadley give it 5 pink stars

I am a preschool teacher of a diverse group of children. It is really hard to find a children's book that represents Arab people without mentioning or referring to religion - we are unable to talk about religion, etc at school. This book also teaches a great lesson and ALL of my students clamor for a turn to look at this book, regardless of their ethnicity or background.
