"Spendid...Readers will delight in the youngsters' friendship." 
                            --School Library Journal (starred review)
This Level 3 Green Light Reader from the award-winning friendship series finds Iris bubbly about becoming a big sister. But when Baby Rose is born, she cries and fusses a lot. Turns out, being a big sister is not what Iris imagined it to be. But with a little help from her best friend, Walter, and Grandpa too, Iris discovers that being a big sister can be least some of the time. Four chapters of easy reading pleasure accompanied by charming, soft-colored illustrations that capture a full range of very real emotions.
