With an almost graphic novel feel to it, this picture book is filled with emotions, imagination, and lots of adventure.
The amazing team of author Minh Lê and illustrator Dan Santat come together once again with another great story about sibling rivalry and great adventures. When Iris starts feeling that she is being replaced by her little brother, she feels angry and sad. Her brother has taken her most important job, pressing the elevator button, and she is feeling left out. All this changes when Iris finds an old bell button and “installs” it on her own closet door, just to find adventure waiting on the other side.
Lift is a short and sweet story that will help older siblings remember that they are still part of the family, and that adventure is always better when we share it with our loved ones. (Ages 4-8)
