Special Order


WAAAAA When Mira's wish for a sister at long last comes true, she's thrilled but the new baby isn't exactly what she expected. Who knew someone so little could make so much noise No matter what Mira or her parents do to soothe or amuse her, the baby's reaction is . . . WAAAAA
On the day of her simchat bat, her Jewish naming ceremony, the baby cries--as usual That is, until Mira steps close to offer her own special gift and the inspiration for her parents' choice of the perfect name.
Lesley Simpson's tale of a family adjusting to a welcome change is sweet and sassy and very funny. It's a universal story about families and siblings, as well as a glimpse into a lovely Jewish ritual for welcoming baby girls to the family and the community.
