Highly recommended. The Little Rose is a wonderful story about a little rose growing up amidst a garden of thick weeds. Picked on and bullied for being "different," she tries to hide in the background, and blend in by cutting off her blooms as they start to appear. But you can't deny who you are, and she soon she is discovered and transported to a beautiful rose garden where she can spread out. Now encouraged and nurtured by the neighboring flowers she reaches her full potential. Although you might seem out of place, bloom and grow...we are all roses!
I love the moment when the little rose feels brave enough in her own skin and dosen't feel like she has to hide. She embraces her inner awesomeness.
Each scene builds on to the next so it's hard to pick a favorite. The story flows nicely. Well written.
Made me feel happy. I love that the author read the book herself. Adds a wonderful personal touch.
Sheri's voice was wonderful to listen to.
This is a delightful book for children that are new to a neighborhood, school or just learning to be themselves in any social environment. I love the positive message at the end of the book.
The Little Rose is a very inspiring story that lets children know that it is perfectly fine to not only be themselves, but to be proud of who they are. I enjoyed listening to The Little Rose, allowing my mind to wander and paint the imagery in my head as author Sheri Fink authentically and successfully voiced her words.
The Little Rose. Because she overcame being bullied to see her true worth and value.
This is the first recording I listened to of Sheri's. She did a great job!
I see a lot of children's books that beat readers to death with their meaning, not knowing that children by default hate this. Though "the little rose" certainly has a strong message of encouragement, it sticks to its metaphor and delivers that medicine with ease. If you have a child that feels out of place, even though you know they are destined for great things, buy this book now.
