Book review: A Guide to Sisters, by Paula Metcalf, illustrated by Suzanne Barton

Metcalf, Paula. Illustrated by Suzanne Barton. A Guide to Sisters. Random House, 2014. $17.99. ISBN 978-0-553-49899-8. Unp. Ages 4-8. P8 Q8

Metcalf Guide to SistersThis book has a contents section at the beginning with 13 different items. This is a guide book about how to understand your little sister. This story tells all the things about little sisters like they are cute, always moving, have sharp teeth, etc. I like when it suggests that big sisters would keep track of how fast little sisters clean up and to make a chart so she will get faster. This would be a great book for a sister about to bring home a new baby sister and a discussion about how they could help.
