Valuable as a True Story Written by a Child for Children  Nov 9, 2004
This book deals with sibling relationships in a unique way: it is "a true story" actually written by an older sibling who was in sixth grade at the time of publication. Sshe recaps her experiences with her younger brother from his birth to approximately preschool. With the older sister as narrator, this story has a very realistic tone. She discusses her mixed feelings about her brother at various stages of his development - from initial excitement to frustration to acceptance and love. Unfortunately, she leaps a bit from frustration to love. The reader is left wondering about the cause for this transformation. The watercolor illustrations are nicely done and compliment the text. But, they lack that indescribable "something" that brings true energy, life, and spirit to a great picture book, as opposed to just a nice one. Recommended children aged for aged 4 to 8 who are interested in books written by children.
Covering the ups and downs of getting along  Apr 6, 2004
Written by a sixth-grade girl, and featuring an audio CD of the story and original songs for brothers and sisters to sing, I Was Born To Be A Sister is a charming and informative picture book about learning to adapt to and cherish the presence of a new sibling in the family household. Covering the ups and downs of getting along, teaching new things, and the wonder of reliving things through younger eyes, I Was Born To Be A Sister is very highly recommended reading -- especially for children ages 3 to 7 whose families are anticipated the arrival of another child.
Review of 'I Was Born to Be a Sister'  Oct 24, 2001
This is a delightful story written by a 12 year old 6th grader living in Washington, D.C. about her own life. Written as a picture book with realistic colorful drawings, this story will appeal to most big sisters. Akaela can't wait to be a sister. But she quickly finds that babies aren't as much fun when they grow into toddlers. This book presents a positive view of family life and is a good readaloud for young children.
