Emma has always wanted a little brother. Now her family is adopting Max, and Emma is sure he will be the best brother ever. But Max has his own ideas. He thinks sisters are yucky, and that Emma is the yuckiest! Is this really what having a brother is all about?

In Jean Little's warmhearted, perceptive story about adoption, Emma learns that there is more to having a little brother than she had ever guessed — and that in order to get the brother she wants, she must first learn to be the sister he needs.

About the Author

Jean Little is the author of more than twenty-five books for children. In addition to Emma's Magic Winter, her first I Can Read Book, Ms. Little's works include the novels Lost and Found, Different Dragons, From Anna and Hey World, Here I Am, illustrated by Sue Truesdell. Jean Little has always been interested in adoption, and she had a first-hand experience with it when her sister adopted two children several years ago. The family has nine pets, the most recent addition being Henry Higgins, a talking African gray parrot. Although Jean Little was born with scarred corneas that severely impair her vision, she has always loved to read and to write. She writes with a voice-activated computer and travels widely with her Seeing Eye dog, Pippa. Ms. Little lives in Ontario, Canada.

Jennifer Plecas's illustrations appear in many popular books for children, including Wrapping Paper Romp, a Growing Tree book by Patricia Hubbell, and Rattlebone Rock by Sylvia Andrews, as well as the ALA Notable Book the Outside Dog, an I Can Read Book by Charlotte Pomerantz. Ms. Plecas lives in Blue Springs, Missouri.

This book is so special. We are in the middle of a foster-to-adoption with our two sons. Our older son is biological and our younger (by 5 years) is a foster care system to an adoption. This book told our story. I cried, my husband cried, our boys cried. I used the book in my first grade classroom for a whole week of lessons and my students cried. This book is fantastic. I even bought a copy to put in our new son's memory box so he will understand what our process was like from a "story book" avenue.
