Rosie Sprout's Time to Shine Hardcover – December 13, 2011
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
Rosie is jealous of her classmate Violet, who stars in gym class, choir practice, at the lunch table, and everywhere else. Body language tells part of the story in this picture book, and the spacious, digitally touched pencil sketches show Rosie seething on the sidelines while Violet hogs the limelight. When the class project is to grow pea plants in little pots on the windowsill at the back of the room, everyone is excited. Violet, of course, knows her plant will be the tallest and her pot the sparkliest. Then fuming Rosie secretly pushes soil on top of Violet’s plant. But when Violet is at home sick for several days, Rosie not only undoes the damage but she also cares for Violet’s plant, and the teacher calls Rosie “the best.” Kids will absorb the botany facts that are informally woven into the story, while the outsider kid’s recognition and self-acceptance makes for great drama. Preschool-Grade 1. --Hazel Rochman
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, October 24, 2011:
"...Wortche possesses both a refreshing directness and a willingness to trust her readers. She also has the courage to conclude not with reconciliation, but with a bittersweet and profoundly wise acknowledgment that it takes all kinds. This impressive new author is well served by Barton (Mine!), whose digital classroom sketches convey a tumult of emotion and have just the right amounts of energy and vulnerability."
