Publisher's Weekly Review

My Big Sister by Valorie Fisher follows on the heels of her My Big Brother to introduce a loving big sister from a baby's perspective. Once again, baby's-eye view photographs depict the sibling from ground level, with shots that focus on her feet, a toy animal zoo, and expressive kisses and scowls. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Life with an older sibling is playfully celebrated in this follow-up to My Big Brother (S & S, 2002). From this baby's point of view, everything about an older sister seems larger than life-as the opening close-up shot of pink high-top sneakers indicates. Fisher's bright, artfully composed photographs offer a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of the brief, simple text. This dynamic big sister "likes to pick out everyone's clothes" (including the pet guinea pig's) and gets "oodles" of calls (on her red plastic toy phone). She is fun to play with, but the narrator knows "I'm not supposed to bother her when she's working" (like when she's painting her toenails). The relationship is both loving ("My big sister kisses me") and realistic ("and sometimes she doesn't"). A visual treat that is perfect for sharing when the new baby comes.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2010.
