Format: Perfect Paperback
This delightful little book will touch you heart if you've ever felt out of place or struggled with self-esteem. Rosa May's pain comes from wearing feed sack dresses to school, among girls in store-bought clothes, when she dreams of wearing a nurse's white. She knows her parents can't afford more, so she gathers herbs to sell. Written as series of poems, Ebel gives us more than just a sweet story with lots of authentic mountain flavor. We share the experience of a girl who learns about herself and what is truly important.
It also contains pencil sketches and bits of information about the herbs Rosa May gathers -- so you learn a bit about these Appalachian Mountain traditions and what was "regular" medicine at the time. This book is suitable for anyone from elementary school to assisted living -- and would make a great gift.

This book tells two useful and entertaining stories. First, it is a great little story to teach children who have plenty to think about those who do not have material possessions yet find ways to be brave and diligent, make unselfish choices, and find ways be happy with what they have. Secondly, the book provides sketches and descriptions of plants found in East Coast mountain areas - great for those who live or vacation there and spend time outdoors.
Perfect choice as a gift book especially young girls from 10-15 or for adults. At 66, I enjoyed reading it myself and will pass to a granddaughter.

Julia Taylor Ebel's works are treasures worth exploring!
Creative storytelling through poetry-- Children love it! Students identify with Rosa Mae's feelings and thoughts, which help them write and tell their own stories. With humor and compassion, this lovely work gives perspective on dealing with hard times from the young girl's insight. The poems are artistically full, yet short, and lend themselves to incorporating history, language arts, science and nature. I use this in theatre classes with students Grades 3-5 at a community school of the arts, out of school academic enrichment program.
