I'm A Big Sister Now
by Katura J. Hudson,
illustrated by Sylvia Walker
published by Marimba Books
Being a big sister is a big job. It takes a lot of work and patience, but it’s a lot of fun, too. This charming picture book explores the anticipation, excitement, and pride of a young girl who takes on this important new role as she helps to welcome a new baby to the family.
"People who use the written word to empower, uplift, challenge – and people who allow words to do those things for them – they’re my kind of people."
