The writing is a good example of REALISTIC FICTION because it deals with experiences that are easy to relate to and compare to your own life. However, the illustrations are a good example of FANTASY because they depict animals playing with each other as if they were humans; the reader has to suspend disbelief to appreciate the illustrations. Age Appropriateness: primaryMedia: watercolors, pen and ink, and pencil

This is a fun book for toddlers to read. My children enjoy the pictures and talking about which character they are in the picture.

This is a wonderful book, especially for "new" siblings. It tells what little boys and little girls can do - essentially, the same thing - be siblings, helping each other. A good lesson! It reads from the front cover, then upside-down, from the back cover. Very clever.

My daughter, who is now an advanced reader, still loves ALL of Laura Numeroff's books and reads them over and over. This latest book is absolutely charming and a must read for families to share together over and over. My daughters (9 & 13) read this book to each other for fun, and expand it into coming up with their own continuation of ideas for What Sisters Do Best. It's great when a book sparks discussion and continued fun... and Laura's books do just that.
