Annie and Simon
Annie is a little girl with a very special big brother. Whether it's helping her decide what she wants to be when she grows up, dealing with a first bee sting, searching for loons on a canoe trip, or going to the park at night to see falling stars, Simon knows how to make the perfect adventure for his little sister. Replete with humor (for example, Simon's plays on the word "loon" in response to Annie's antics in the canoe)
and warmth, this easy chapter book is enhanced by watercolor illustrations that perfectly capture the mood of the story. Four short chapters make this treasure a natural for kids just graduating from picture books. 57 pages. Recommended for ages 5-8.
