"A paean to sisterhood captures the girls at, mostly, their sweetest in bright, crisp full-color photographs. What is plain is the happiness coming off the pages ... [as well as] scenes that delight, moments of pure companionship to make other siblings smile".

Kirkus Reviews 12/15/1999

"The spunk of four multiracial pairs of siblings shines through this photographic celebration of sisterhood. The playful spontaneity of the photos is extended by the book production".

"It is the pictures that make this book enchanting. And while the short couplets that accompany each photo are often wry and sweet, it is the pictures that make the book. Anyone who has ever had a sister will smile after seeing this book".

"Sisters frolic in the snow together, pick pumpkins in a pumpkin patch, play hide and seek, laugh and cry together. The bond they share is undeniable. The result is an exuberant collection that celebrates childhood, sisterly love and yes, even sibling rivalry".

If you are looking for anything related to; new baby in the house, welcoming a sister, newborn, second child, sisterhood, photo illustrations and a photojournalist's take on writing and illustrating children's books you're in the right place! This book is also a great gift for big sister and little sister and all siblings and kids. I'm a member of the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, or the SCBWI and the MI-SCBWI. This childrens book was written for girls and is about sisterly love. I use photography to create the illustrations, making them photo illustrations. Marci Curtis is an author who's name is often misspelled to marciecurtis, marcycurtis, or Marcie Curtis. My background is in photojournalism. I wrote this book which came out on mother's day for a newborn, little sister and big sister. I also wrote another children's book, big brother, little brother. I'm available to do school visits in Michigan, and I do MI author appearances and book signings. All of my children's books are published by Dial Books for Young Readers, Penguin Putnam.
