The Book

This is a heartwarming book about two sisters who are also best of friends.  It is the follow-up to the Junior Guild Gold Standard Selection book "Maddie and Mable." Both are excellent! 

The book is divided into chapters and is perfect for beginning readers or to be shared.  Together the adorable girls voice their own opinions and help each other out as they climb trees, share snacks, and attend school.  The sisters problem solve, support each other, and love always reigns in their relationship. Themes of family, kindness, teamwork and independence are promoted throughout.  

The illustrations are engaging and animated.  The author includes thought-provoking questions to discuss with your child at the end of the book: Make A Kinder World, Talk About It, and Connect To Your Story.  The new addition to this early chapter book series is wonderful and I highly recommend it.
