Karen Baicker's can-do heroine is back. This time, instead of figuring out what she has to learn, as she did in I Can Do It Too!, she is teaching her young sibling everything she thinks he needs to know. From banging a spoon on the back of a pan for music to march by to spitting straight into the sink when it is tooth-brushing time, the big sister is very busy—so busy that it takes a while for her to realize that her little brother can do something she cannot!

Ken Wilson-Max's vivid, posterlike illustrations and Karen Baicker's simple, family-friendly poetry make this reading pleasure for toddlers, their older siblings, and the grown-ups who love them.

Oops. Amazon has this book for the 9 to 12 year-old crowd, but it should really be listed for the Kindergarten and under age group. (And even that's a stretch).

This book is all about a big sister and her little brother. As he is only a little guy his big sister is showing how to do new things. For example, (every mom's dream) she shows him how to clean up after morning playtime. Also big sister shows him how to wait in line and take his turn. Always there is the refrain that he can do it himself, even if he can't quite do it right now. At the end of the book there is a hint that little brother may show big sister to have a new look at things as she joins him in looking through his legs at an upside down world.

Four Stars. Vibrant colors and nice pictures. This would make a good book to read to a child who was wondering what life might be like with a new brother or sister.
The main character takes delight in showing her little brother the many things he's capable of doing despite his age. An inspiring read to children whose parents are expecting an addition to the family.
