Do Like Kyla

by Angela Johnson
Illustrated by James Ransome

Published by Orchard Books, 1990
32 pages
ISBN: 0-531-08452-3

Ages 2-5

A typical winter day in the life of a young African-American girl is described in a first-person text in which older sister Kyla is the focus. While getting dressed, braiding hair, eating breakfast, playing in the snow, and walking to the store, the narrator watches and imitates everything her older sister does. A warm, loving relationship between two sisters is depicted in the perfectly paced text as well as in the stunning full-color oil paintings by a promising young artist.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
