Mira's birthday wish comes true when her baby sister is born, but the little one spends her first eight days wailing, leaving the family at a loss for a name to announce at her simchat bat until Mira's song during the naming ceremony has an unexpected effect.

Mira longed for a little sister, but she didn’t realize how much noise a baby could make, nor the big changes to family life. When the baby cries the day of her simchat bat (and naming), Mira calms her with a song, hence baby Shira.

Sweet story about a sister adjusting to her new sibling. The female rabbi presiding over the naming ceremony is a nice touch.
