About this title


When her sister Celia prepares for her wedding, Emma misses the quiet, private times they used to share

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 This mildly amusing family anecdote centers on the negative feelings a younger sister harbors when her beloved older sister's impending wedding causes her to be left out in the cold. Emma, around seven, has always looked forward to spending a special day each week with "the best sister in the world." Together, she and Celia draw and make special treats. Emma feels that fiance Ben ursurps her place, and she acts out her disappointment and anger by rejecting Celia and refusing to enjoy the excitement surrounding the plans for the wedding. Naturally, wise Celia wins Emma over. The affection that the members of this family feel toward each other is evident in the text, and reinforced through the colorful, childlike illustrations that adorn each page. However, the story line is weakened by extraneous details, such as Emma's conversations with her best friend Debbie, or Dad's need to wash the dog to dispel pre-wedding jitters. The careful juxtaposition of text with pictures do make this an acceptable book for sharing as a read-aloud. It is not a priority purchase, but could be useful in collections needing material describing unusual sibling relationships. Martha Rosen, Edgewood School Library, Scarsdale, N.Y.
