Big Red Lollipop is written by Rukhsana Khan and illustrated by Sophie Blackall. It tells the story of Rubina and the first birthday party she is invited to. Rubina is estatic about it But her mother insists that Rubina take her little sister, Sana. Rubina is not happy about it. At the party, Sana acts up; demanding to win every game and steals her older sister's lollipop. This is a great story that introduces kids to the experience of being thrust into a new culture and shows some sibling rivalry. ( )

Oh my goodness I loved this book as I connected with it so much! Rubina, the big sister, ended up having to let her little sister tag along at her friends birthday party where she ruined everything and even stole Rubina's lollipop she was saving to eat later on. I was this little sister!!! My mom used to make my big sister take me along everywhere with her and her friends, although she was always a tough sport about it and never made me feel unwanted, looking back, I loved hanging out with my big sister and her friends. When Sana gets older and has a birthday party to go to of her own, the littlest sister wants to join. Rubina sticks up for Sana and the little sister isn't forced to tag along and when Sana returns home she brings a lollipop for Rubina. Such a cute story about having sisters. ( )
