Supersister by Beth Cadena

Cadena, Beth. Supersister, illustrated by Frank W. Dormer. Clarion Books, 2009. $16.00. PICTURE BOOK. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s supersister swooping into save the day. She pours cereal, ties shoelaces, and goes to school where she thinks of more ways to help her mom. When she gets home she walks to the dog, sets the table, and when she goes to sleep counts sheep. She can’t wait until she becomes a supersister. Her mom says it will be soon. The super cartoon illustrations combine traditional picture book format with comic book scenes. This book is a good choice for children who are expecting a new sibling. EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
