Description

Meet Livi and Grace--sisters with absolutely nothing in common--except love and respect for everything that makes them different
Grace is carefree, loves bright prints, splashing barefoot in puddles--and playing with her boots unlaced. Her older sister, Livi, loves to write, prefers ballet flats, and doing things just right. When Grace speeds by on her bicycle, her hair flies in the wind, and her feet barely touch the pedals. When Livi rides her bicycle, her hair is in a proper ponytail, and she's the picture of perfect form.
While the sisters seem to have totally opposite tastes in everything--from clothes to food to sports--what they do have in common is just how much they love, celebrate, and respect their sibling's opposite personality. With fun rhyme and colorful illustrations, Livi & Grace models behavior for young readers that acknowledges that everyone has value, no matter their likes and dislikes or how they look or dress.
