PreS-K-An unnamed narrator tells of the wonderful things her big sister can do that she can't. Olive can braid hair, knit, tie her shoelaces, play the accordion, skip rope, turn a cartwheel, and ride a scooter better than her younger sibling. But when Olive comes home from school, the hugs she gets from her little sister are the best in the world. The illustrations for this slight story are done digitally and then placed on fancy background papers and photographs. The style of the children's clothing places them in Victorian times. There's really no story here, just a young girl's admiration of her big sister.-Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI (c) Copyright 2012.
