Last night I was set to critique a manuscript that had some interesting sibling dialogue. Then this morning I was watching the movie In Her Shoes and in an instant I had an "Aha" moment. So...
Today's masterpiece is the ever challenging and extremely fun world of the sibling. Here are some books that include just that:
Flora's Very Windy Day (picture book)
by, Jeane Birdsall who is also the author of The Penderwicks...I'm curious about the very interesting boy in the story. This one is definitely on my to read list!
Sand Sisters (picture book)
by, Amanda White and Illustrated by Yuyi Morales.
I love Yuyi's artwork in the book. She is quite a colorful character. Swing by her blog here for some magnificence.
