Little Lady Rose by Tamar Grigsby is a sweet children’s novella. Rose didn’t feel like getting out of bed because she had a horrible time at school the day before. But she was curious to know about the special thing her mother wanted them to do in the garden. She stared in amazement at the beautiful flowers in their garden. The roses bloomed in an assortment of colors and sizes. Rose’s mother told her that the color of each flower was significant in meaning. The red rose is to remind her that she’s courageous, loved and respected. Her mother went on to explain that white roses meant a new beginning in life, pink means happiness, and yellow brings joy. Eventually, Rose began to feel better as her mother described more flowers. Now she calls herself Little Lady Rose because she knows how special she is too.
Being teased or provoked by other children can make a child have low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and feel unhappiness. Rose’s bad day at school made her very sad. Early childhood educator Tamar Grigsby has written a lovely story with important values. She has shown how parents or teachers can cleverly deal with issues the way Rose’s mother did. You don’t need a garden to solve a problem, just to be creative and caring to make a child feel more confident and happy. I also loved the illustrations in this short novella. Little Lady Rose by Tamar Grigsby is a wonderful, inspiring children’s storybook that I highly recommend.
