“Rhythmic rhyming couplets imbue this story with upbeat energy, which is reflected in the dynamic, vibrantly colored single- and double-page–spread digital illustrations. The sisters’ relationship is refreshingly realistic, from power dynamics arising from their age gap to the way shared creative passions can quell conflict…. A simple, heartwarming ode to sisterhood.”—Kirkus Reviews
"A solid choice to add to a school's collection of sibling stories."—School Library Journal
“The illustrations by Jackson are colorful, full of expression, and heartwarming. The soft details and pastel hues bring warmth to the realistic characters. Supportive with a strong family message, this offering is a natural read-alike for Kelly Sterling Lyons’s Ty’s Travels series.”—Booklist
