Matisse is a little girl in a big world. Despite her size, she gets to have all sorts of grand adventures, like seeing the big sights of the city, making big messes, and taking big naps when her little body is all tuckered out. But when Matisse meets her baby brother, she realizes that she isn't so little after all- She’s a big sister! And it’s great fun to show this new little person what wonders this big world has in store.

With warmth and joy, Claire Keane showcases a gorgeous retro-inspired style to tell this tender tale of unconditional sibling love.

An adorable story with equally adorable illustrations. This is fantastic book to gift any child who's about to become a big brother/sister. This sweet, heart felt story is about Matisse, a little girl, who loves to explore the big world around. When she meets her baby brother, she realizes she now has a big job, and loves to help take care of him. Together, they love to explore the big world around them.

Not only is this a beautifully told story, the illustrations alone are worth picking up this book. The illustrations are some of my favorites. They have a old school, retro, Disney style to them, mixed with a bit of The Family Circus, Sunday Comic Strip illustrations I loved as a kid. I love illustrations like this. They have a timeless, cheerful, yet simple feel to them. The simple color scheme, and bold illustrations are perfect for kids!

This is one book I'd definitely recommend picking up!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
