Little Big Girl
by Claire Keane (Dial Press / Penguin 2016)
A touching picture book about an older sister’s unconditional love for her new baby brother
Matisse is a little girl in a big world. Despite her size, she gets to have all sorts of grand adventures, like seeing the big sights of the city, making big messes, and taking big naps when her little body is all tuckered out. But when Matisse meets her baby brother, she realizes that she isn’t so little after all- She’s a big sister! And it’s great fun to show this new little person what wonders this big world has in store.
With warmth and joy, Claire Keane showcases a gorgeous retro-inspired style to tell this tender tale of unconditional sibling love.
"LITTLE BIG GIRL... refreshes with its lack of irony” and that “the point here is to rejoice in a new sibling, and that’s what Matisse models beautifully for young readers as she and her brother ‘discover their big world together.’” —The Wall Street Journal
