"First there was just me--
Johanna--just me and Mom
and Dad. Then one day they
said a baby was on the way . . ."

Little Sisters can be a pain. They cry a lot and play with your toys when you don't want them to. But they can also be a lot of fun. They're there when you're lonely, and, sometimes, they share things when you haven't even asked. Maybe having a little sister isn't so bad after all.

This is a special picture book that captures the joys and frustrations of sisterhood in simple words and delightful photographs.
