Sister Rivalry by Puneet Bhandal

Book Blurb:

Mili is the tennis ace in her family, even though she has difficulty focusing during lessons. “Try harder, do better,” the coach always tells her. When her little sister, Tara, joins the tennis club and gets more praise, Milli feels sad and envious. She loves Tara and wants to support her, but she doesn’t like being second best. How will Mili deal with these conflicting challenges?

Review:

This book focuses on sibling rivalry, the idea of losing whilst managing your emotions and not always being able to hold feelings in. Everyone is good at something and even though no one wants to be second best finding your niche can really help mentally. Sisters do not need to be good at the same things. Accompanied with beautiful illustrations by Fatima Saad Ali this book also focuses on diversity, fitness and the importance of sport. Perfect for children ages 4+.
