All Mia wants is for her big brother, Spencer, to play with her. But he's always too busy! So Mia paints, and dances, and explores, and keep busy all by herself. But with a little imagination and a lot of love, Mia might just be able to show Spencer that it's a lot more fun to be busy together.

My Thoughts
This book is very realistic, in the way young kids play - alone and then together.  The pages were colorful and showed the imaginations of the two kids pretty well.  I have read this several times to my niece and nephew who are preschool age.  After finishing, they ask me to read it again!  A good story that they really get involved in.  I Rated This Book:  4/5 Stars ****
