Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Setting / A Brooklyn street with typical attached brick houses. The action takes place on the front steps-the stoop-of Rosie's house, and later in the cellar. The time is now, from morning to early evening of a hot July day.

I grew up listening to Really Rosie (by Carol King) and following along in this book. I'm 32 now and still like to sing the songs with my family, when we get together. It's a great way to get children interested in creating highly imaginative situations and promotes group entertainment among a diverse age range.

Decided to purchase this based on my love of the Nutshell Kids segments in the Scholastic Video Series and rave reviews by others of Really Rosie. It was not what I expected. It is perfect if you want to put on a production of Really Rosie. It's also perfect if want the sheet music for the musical numbers. But if you want to read Pierre, Alligators All Around, One Was Johnny, and Chicken Soup With Rice in book form, I highly recommend the box set on offer; my 3-year-old loves them.

Really Rosie was, without a doubt, my favorite character growing up. I knew all the songs, and wore out the record. I finally bought another copy two years ago when I was hunting for the perfect gift for a friend's 5-year-old daughter, and I still knew all the words! This spunky heroine is a great example for any shy young girl - she's imaginative, creative, confident and a leader. And don't we need more of that nowadays from young women!

This is a truly wonderful book. I worked in a day care for 15 years. We had movie day every Wed. This was one of the kids all time favorites favorite movies. And the book is just as great. Definitly one of my favorites. Right there next to "Where The Wild Things Are".

Given that Really Rosie is still not out on DVD yet, this will serve as a excellent "stand in" product for it. You get the story behind it, and sheet music for seven of the eleven songs and a few stills from the special.

Of course, you can now get all four of the "Nutshell Library" songs on the "Where The Wild Things Are" DVD, but I'm still waiting for the day that Really Rosie comes out on DVD.

And, BTW, Youtube have taken down the three parts to the Really Rosie special, citing a copyright claim from Weston Woods.

The book was in excellent shape, the price was extraordinary. I was disappointed though in that it did not have all the songs, and omitted some I particularly wanted like "The Awful Truth". Also the music was dummed down some from what you hear on the soundtrack.

We got the Nutshell books (which the musical is based on) as a gift; my parents also have the record (yes, record) of this show and our daughter loved listening to the songs. We started listening to them on YouTube and she kept loving them, so we got this so I could play them on the piano. If that's what you want to do, this book is useful. Depending on your skill level, the songs might be too simplistic or just right - be aware that the real songs have introductory portions, and those aren't in this music, nor are other embellishments, so it sounds simpler than what's on the recordings you might listen to. But that also makes it easier to play. I'd have liked the harder version personally.
