ean Little’s most recent book, The Sweetest one of all, is a picture book for very young children and their parents. In it, barnyard animal babies ask their mothers who they are and each of them is told that he or she is the sweetest one of all. The book ends with a human mother telling her little one the same thing. And getting a loving hug in response. The playful text should continue to delight both children and adults even after many readings.

The colourful illustrations by Marisol Sarrazin are endearing and filled with lively detail. Each will hold small readers spellbound.

Emma's Yucky Brother

Emma's Yucky Brother

I Can Read Books Series, Harper, 2001, 64 Pages

Poor Emma! She has it all planned. Her parents are adopting a four year old boy named Max. Emma is convinced he'll be little and sweet, and it will be wonderful having a brother. When she tells her friend Sally that Max is coming to visit, Sally warns her that little brothers can be pests. Emma won't listen.
Her expectations take a blow from reality when Max comes to visit. He isn't little and he isn't friendly. Max tells Emma the cookies she made him are "yucky." When Emma's friend Sally comes over, Max plays with Sally and her little brother, Josh. When Max leaves, he doesn't even say good-bye to Emma.

In spite of reassurance from her parents, Emma feels hurt; Max doesn't like her or her cookies and likes Sally best. In fact, Emma is mad, shouting, "...I don't need a brother. Brothers are nothing but pests!" Things do not improve when Max comes for the weekend. He wants to play with Sally and calls Emma "Yucky Emma." Max misses his foster mother, Jane, and cries for her.

As Emma sees how unhappy Max is, she begins to soften towards him. Reassurance from her parents as to their love for her helps. However, when Max moves in, he is still belligerent towards Emma and keeps calling her "Yucky Emma." Emma realizes that Sally was right; sometimes a brother can be a pest. When Max runs away after accidentally breaking her doll, Emma realizes how much she cares for him. When Emma finally finds Max, her little brother realizes he can depend on her when he needs help. When Sally congratulates "Yucky Emma" for finding Max, Max corrects her, saying, "Emma isn't yucky. She's my sister."
