This picture book about a girl with Down syndrome is written in the voice of Rachel, her older sister. Rachel explains how Alicia May is like many other girls her own age with her interest in dogs, horses, and toenail polishing. The wonderful times also come with tough times . Read to find out what Rachel does to stick up for her little sister. The book’s illustrations are so vivid that they almost look like photographs. T
