Sharing Saturday | Big Sister, Little Sister

Happy Saturday! A few things to browse this weekend on Sharing Saturday…


* a review of something we appreciate,
* links to online contests or give-aways (because I’m a sucker for both), and
* links to a few good reads (e.g. articles, blog posts, photos).


My sharing is focused on living a simple, environmentally-friendly, and balanced lifestyle.


BOOK REVIEW

I know so many people with two (or more) little girls. Sisters. (Truthfully, I always wished I had had a sister…as much as I love my older and younger brothers, and all.) So I want to share one of our favorite sister books. Can you tell it’s gotten lots of use at our house?


2010-05-29 - Sharing Saturday - Big Sister, Little Sister Book <br /> <br / Review, Author Marci Curtis" title="2010-05-29 - Sharing Saturday ...


Big Sister, Little Sister is a whimsical photographic journey. The story follows four pairs of sisters who love one another and have fun, fun, fun. And, I give extra kudos to the author, Marci Curtis, for making the book multiracial. It’s a breath of fresh air and meaningful to see regular sisters (you know, the un-airbrushed, un-photoshoped type girls) doing exactly what they do best. Braiding
hair, jumping rope, bubble baths, puddle jumping…having fun! And most importantly, the girls’ love for one another shines through on each page.


We scored this treasure a few years ago at a library book sale. If you’ve got girls, I highly recommend it for your family. Additionally, Curtis published another book a few years later, titled Big Brother, Little Brother. However, the reviews leave me wondering if it’s as great of a book.


Super-steal once again on Amazon, Used.


CONTESTS

Anyone want to win one a beautifully-amazing kitchen knife? I do! Deadline: June 2


Hmmmm…an Apple iPad with Wi-Fi-16GB sounds pretty good too. I haven’t made the leap-over to Mac’s, but I’d be happy to try it out. Deadline: June 25


AROUND THE WEB

I love birth stories…so I had to share a birth story Progressive Pioneer shared last week, in which a mother and
daughter reflect. My favorite part: “…a woman must put her blood, sweat, and tears on the
line for the child she was birthing…it was an opportunity to demonstrate that she had the strength to be a mother….” So true.


Ugh. On the opposite end of the birthing spectrum, this week’s LA Times article reinforces that something is majorly wrong with the way we are handling birth in the US. Read “Rising maternal mortality rate causes alarm, calls for action” for more information on this growing trend.


And lastly for this week…do you know the which is the best country in the world to be a new mother? It may
surprise you.
