Description

A sequel story to the book “Go away tears!” (the selected school assignment book).
The two sisters now welcome a younger brother to the family. They are happy, but they also experience conflicting emotions. “Am I not the special one anymore?” “I should boss the new baby around.” The two girls learn what it means to become ‘a big sister’ for the new family member through interacting with their parents, their relatives and their neighbors.
Sometimes comical, sometimes sentimental, this book is a faithful and observant depiction of how new siblings are welcomed into the fold.
