Big sisters are the best! Neither rain nor a series of setbacks can put a damper on a young girl’s day spent with her big sister. A picture book that captures the love between siblings!

A young girl is thrilled to spend the day with her big sister, but things don’t go as planned. It’s so hot outside—legs-stick-to-the-seat hot—that her ice cream melts and then it rains. Their plans must change, and then change again as the library closes just before they arrive. But big sister knows just what to do next—even if it’s nothing besides splashing in puddles and looking at the stars. The day isn’t anything like little sister expected . . . it’s better.

For fans of Oge Mora's Saturday, this picture book about the power of sibling friendship comes from award-winning author Nelly Buchet and Salvadoran illustrator Rachel Kastaller.
