Week 25: Big Red Lollipop

In Big Red Lollipop, by Rukhasana Khan, Rubina is invited to a birthday party. When she asks if she can go, her little sister, Sana, cries to be allowed to attend the party as well. Rubina insists that is not how parties go - she can't just bring along her sister, but her mother insists. After the party, Sana eats Rubina's lollipop that was part of her goodie bag. 
When the time comes for Sana to be invited to a party, will her mother insist that she take her sister or allow her to go by herself?
This is a wonderful book for exploring the relationships between siblings and the feelings that go along with wanting to fit in with you friends but also be true to family.
