Happy Sister's Day!

Today is national Sister's Day (I know, a holiday for sisters? They think of everything don't they?)... Anyway, to celebrate this day Scholastic put together a list of favorite literary sisters, which you can check out here. This list includes the much loved March sisters (Little Women), Bennet sisters (Pride & Prejudice), Dashwood sisters (Sense & Sensibility) and of course Beezus and Ramona to name a few.

It's a good list, but I can think of at least three more sets of sisters that did not make this list, but I believe should have. They are: The Ray sisters (Julia, Betsy and Margaret) from the Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace, the Ingalls sisters (Mary, Laura, Carrie and Grace) from the Little House on the Prairie series, and of more recent literary fame: the Penderwick sisters (Rosalind, Skye, Jane and Batty) from The Penderwick series by Janne Birdsall.

Who would you list as your favorite literary sisters?

The sisters from the All-of-a-Kind Family books come to mind

I cannot believe I forgot the sisters from All of a Kind Family! They deserve to be on this list too!
