Sisters, By Lesley Beake, with illustrations by Beverley de Meyer, Cambridge University Press Rainbow Readers, published in 2009. This very simple story has very few words and tells the story, mostly through the illustrations, of an older sister who looks after her young sibling – with no adults around.

Elzaine said: This is a sad book because they don’t have a mother and the older sister must look after her little sister and care for her, all on her own. She must help her with everything and teach her manners and how to behave.
