"The Little Rose" is a beautiful story written by Sheri Fink and illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam. Little Rose was surrounded by weeds and never felt as if she fit in with them. Little Rose was teased, called names and treated poorly by those around her. Suddenly one day a Lady noticed Little Rose and came back the next day and transplanted her into a flower bed at her home. Being in a new environment where she is cared for and treated nicely, Little Rose thrives and enjoys life.

This is a beautiful story illustrating how people, adults and children alike, respond to those around them and their environments. Just as Little Rose was miserable, stayed small and felt bad about herself in a bed of weeds, so will people who are surrounded by others who do not treat them well. In order to be happy and live up to one's potential, one must be surrounded by others who treat one another with kindness and is given an opportunity to be one's self and grow. This is a good and important lesson for children and a reminder for adults. The story is easy to read as it flows well, is easily understood and is geared toward children and would be a great resource for parents, teachers and counselors. I think this book will be appreciated by people of all ages as it is a timeless lesson that is beautifully illustrated both verbally and visually.

Hayley Rose, Award-winnin
I picked up a copy of "The Little Rose" by Sheri Fink at the OC Kids Book festival, and it is fast becoming a favorite around my house. A story of 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!
