Ed Young's new book, My Mei Mei, is a gift: It tells his own family's story, wrapped in some of the most beautiful artwork ever to grace a children's book. His daughter, Antonia, can only pretend to be a Jieh-Jieh, a big sister, until she travels with her parents to China to bring home a Mei Mei, a little sister. At first, being Rachel's big sister isn't as wonderful as Antonia imagined, but she grows into the role. This is a lovely book for any sisters, and a must-read for sisters brought together through adoption from China.
