Cute, cute, cute! Rose and Her Amazing Nose by Andrew W. Fairchild follows a little girl, Rose, who has a gigantic nose, in this children's book intended for kindergarten through third grade reading. Instead of feeling sorry for herself or being upset about her grand sized nose, Rose explains how her nose fits her perfectly. She is a positive and upbeat little girl who says she would miss her big nose if she didn't have it because then her glasses might fall off her face, she couldn't pretend it was a trumpet, she couldn't smell roses as easily, and several more wonderful reasons.
The illustrations are over sized, just like Rose's nose, which makes it a perfect complement to this book. So much color and detail is used in the fabulous illustrations by George A. Raggett that they drew my attention immediately and should also entice a child to read and enjoy the book as well. Every time I look at the pictures, I notice something new and I like the fact that he put Rose's cat in many of the drawings.
Kids get teased about so many things these days, so Rose and her Amazing Nose by Andrew W. Fairchild is a breath of fresh air telling readers about a young girl who is happy with herself just as she is. Rose tells us at the end, "I do not want a different nose no matter how big it may be. This is simply who I am and what makes me . . . ME!"
