In Emma Kate and The Show and Tell Day, Emma Kate is faced with a dilemma. Show and Tell day is coming up at school, and she can’t decide what to bring to class! She searches around her house and talks with her parents about what she should show her friends and teacher, but her little sister keeps getting in the way. What is she going to do? It feels like she ruins everything. Will Emma Kate ever figure out what to bring for Show and Tell day? Will Emma Kate and her sister ever get along? In this children’s book, author Melissa Balderas crafts a beautiful story that is sure to resonate with young children.

I found Emma Kate and The Show and Tell Day to be an adorable picture story that focuses on family dynamics and the relationship between sisters. The art by Rosemarie Gillen was adorable and well done, and I enjoyed looking at this as I read through the book. Although Emma Kate often gets frustrated with her baby sister, they do still love each other dearly and that is easily seen at the end of the story. Overall, I believe this is a great story for small children, and Melissa Balderas promotes the idea of family love and sharing with others. I would recommend this book to both parents and children! It can be a great book to look at with kids who are learning to read, and the story shares a great message, especially regarding the relationship between sisters.
