Another graphic novel about Raina and her sister, Sisters (Lexile: GN 290; Interest Level: Grades 3-7) by Raina Telgemeier focuses on the relationship that Raina has with her little sister, Amara. Raina really wanted a little sister, but when Amara is born, she realizes that her sister is her own person and has a mind of her own. As they get older, and baby brother comes along, they realize that they should learn to get along for the good of the family.
This is a cute story, well told in comic form. Parts certainly reminded me of life growing up with my sisters (and brothers)! Any readers who have ever wanted (or wished to get rid of) siblings may enjoy this story. (208 p.)
One of the reasons I became an elementary school librarian is so I can read children's books.
