When a baby sister comes along, it seems she is just too little for anything! Will she ever be big enough to play? To whisper secrets? To eat kimchee? Will she always lie there? Scream for no reason? Be so helpless and little? When a baby sister is just TOO LITTLE to do anything, what's her big sister to do but wait and wait and WAIT . . . and dream about what's to come.
Susan Roth and Nancy Patz have collaborated on a stunning and heartwarming story of two Korean sisters, celebrating in glorious color a universal bond between a tiny baby sister and her loving big sister.
