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.
