Kate cannot stand it when her younger sister, Tory, copies her all the time, following her and even trying to look like her, until suddenly Tory stops

From Publishers Weekly:

With its large-print, easy-to-follow text and good-natured, boldly hued gouaches, Noll's ( Watch Where You Go ; Jiggle Wiggle Prance ) latest work has a message for any child who has discovered that being imitated by a younger sibling is anything but flattering. Kate does not like the fact that her sister, Tory, wants to do everything that Kate does. But Noll adds a novel slant to this frequently depicted scenario--suddenly it seems that Tory has less and less interest in copying Kate, and wants to spend more time with friends or by herself. When Kate complains that Tory no longer needs her, their mother knows how to make the big sister feel better. With their identical, straw-colored hair and diverting facial expressions, Kate and Tory are an amiable duo indeed. Ages 3-up.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- Kate is annoyed by her younger sister Tory's insistence on mimicking her every move. Her mother explains that "It's part of growing up . . . She needs you." One day Tory is invited to play with someone else and soon even wants to play alone on occasion. That, too, bothers Kate, who doesn't feel needed any longer. Her mother again offers assurance to help Kate understand the complications of growing up and sibling relationships. Bright gouache and colored-pencil illustrations expand the simple text with which children will identify and empathize, whether their "copycat" is a sibling or a friend. Every bit as charming and on target as Noll's previous books. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NB
