A fantastic book about one littlest sister’s attempts to stand out and be remembered just like her older sisters. While her journey to arrive there is a little rough, she’s aided by her sisters’ kindness and her own discovery of a passion that is all her own. I really enjoy that it’s a book about sibling rivalry that isn’t unkindly imposed by older siblings, but rather by a younger siblings own feeling of pressure to live up to the high bar set for them. The illustrations are charmingly whimsical as well.
