This book is a beautiful homage to sisterhood. Big sister and little sister are very good friends. They sew together, explore together, walk to school together, and play outside together. Big sister always looks out for little sister, keeping her safe, teaching her to do things, and comforting her when she cries. But little sister doesn't like the fact that big sister always seems to know more, and one day she runs away. Big sister looks and looks for her, but little sister doesn't come out of hiding. Finally, the tables turn when it is big sister that starts to cry and little sister come sot her aid with a tissue, a hug, and some comforting leomonade. And from that day on, both sisters realized that big or little, each could take care of the other. The sweet story and adorable illustrations make for one special little book.

This copy is a hardcover in fair vintage condition. The pages are very clean and nice with only light reading wear, but the cover has significant shelfwear (see scan). The pages are bound together, but the binding to the cover feels a bit loose (it is still attached and all, but feels wobbly to me). It is perfectly fine for reading, but I would not unleash it on less gentle small hands. Best for grownups to read it aloud, or perhaps even re-purpose it for the gorgeous illustrations.
