Sisters Forever

Kids sometimes see the arrival of a new baby in the family as a cause for jealousy, but this charming, customized hardcover book can help those new big sisters see how they fit in the picture. Written by Laura Numeroff, author of If Your Give a Mouse a Cookie, the book explains all the things a big sister can do for their little siblings. Big sis will be delighted to see her name appear on the cover and throughout the story, along with a special dedication message from you on the front page.

The book is written as if regaling the new sibling with all the loving things the older child will do. This helps to model positive sibling interaction without feeling preachy, and also provides an opportunity for big sisters to share the book once the little one is old enough to enjoy story time.

The pages are warmly illustrated by Lynn Munsinger, with cute tigers, bears, pigs having adventures with their little brothers or sisters. The link below lets you read the entire story and all its adventures! Printed in the USA.

      I bought this for my granddaughter who is going to be big sister to twins soon. Her grandfather red it to her (she's two) and she was very interested. My only wish is that there would be a version for expected twins. It's very well written and illustrated.

      Comments about PERSONALIZED WHAT BIG SISTER DOES BEST BOOK:

      I would've easily given this lovely book a 5, as it's such a perfect gift. I am so impressed with the level of customization (that it wasn't just on the cover, but throughout).

      However, when I received it there was some sort of black ink that was rubbed all over the back of the cover. I tried to get it off with a damp wash cloth, but no such luck. Because the gift is personalized, I could not return it. But, because the book is white it looked like I was giving a used book. I was a little dissapointed that for a rather pricey childrens book it didn't come in better shape.

              I purchased this as a gift for my 6 year old granddaughter. Her new baby brother arrived 2 days before the book. She was excited to find a book with her name in it. She read it immediately and to everyone who comes to see her brother!
              Great gift for the little ones to help them feel special during this time!! Love it!

                The personalized book is very attractive with illustrations. The writing is easily understood by young readers. It is a great gift idea for any big sister to be or someone who is already a big sister. The binding is nicely made as well.

                          Bought this book for my daughter as a gift for becoming a 1st time Big Sister. I thought the fact that it was personalized was a great plus!

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Wish it would've arrived a little sooner, but I guess having something customized makes for a wait!
