Rose is lured by the delicious aroma of a chocolate cake baking in the oven. When she asks her mom to have a slice, and Mom tells her that she must wait, Rose is tempted to disobey. All of a sudden her happy mood deserts her, and she is torn between what she wants and how her mother will feel if she steals a piece of cake while her mom is not looking. What will she decide? Is she correct in her decision? How does mom react?
Every young child is faced with decisions like these everyday as part of the growing up process. Eichler has written a charming little book in verse exploring the topic of honesty and lying and how a child might handle these these feelings. The accompanying illustrations accurately display the characters' feelings and emotions.
The book is recommended as a bedtime story, but I think it is good example to illustrate the importance of honesty whenever a parent or teacher deems is appropriate to have this discussion with a child.
In Shani Eichler's first book on the market, she explores this idea with Little Rose who cannot overcome the temptation to taste a delicious chocolate cake her mother made. Read this book with your child and it will spark an important discussion about honesty and following the rules.
It is a pleasure to read with the witty rhyming and colorful illustrations. Enjoy!
