When Lisa’s baby sister arrives, everyone makes a big fuss–everyone but Lisa. Grandma is all excited, Dad can’t snap enough photos, Lisa’s big sister Victoria has to show off the baby to all of her friends, and of course, Mom is always busy feeding the baby or changing her diaper. No one pays much attention to Lisa until she begins playing her flute very loudly just outside the baby Lila’s room. And then one of Victoria’s friends proclaims that this very cute little baby looks just like Lisa. It isn’t long before Lisa becomes a proud big sister and even takes Lila to school for show and tell.
