Velma starts first grade in the shadow of her memorable older sisters, and while her newfound interest in butterflies helps her to stand out, it also leads to an interesting complication.
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.
