A little girl thinks of all the things her new baby sister can't do, starting with eating spicy kimchee, and then imagines all the things they will do together when the baby is older. The story realistically conveys the wide and conflicting range of emotions that an older child may feel at the arrival of a new sibling. The narrator has some sibling rivalry and jealousy, she frequently mentions things she can do that the baby cannot, but she is also excited at the prospect of having a sister and teaching that sister how to dance and sing. The artwork is a neat and brightly colored mix of drawings and collage, and creatively fits the narration of the story. When the girl is thinking about dancing, cutouts of the two arc across the pages, conveying movement. When the baby cries, the collage explodes with loud red, yellow and purple stripes. This is a cute story about siblings that is best for ages four through seven.
