Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 01/01/2012 K-Gr 2—Rosie isn't the fastest runner, or the best singer, or the fanciest dressed for picture day. Those superlatives, and more, belong to Violet. Everyone in the class supports her bigger—and better—personality. Everyone except Rosie. When the two girls' pea plants are the first to sprout, Violet barges ahead and declares hers the best. Jealous, Rosie covers Violet's sprout with dirt. When Violet comes down with chicken pox, Rosie, feeling guilty, cares for her sprout as well as her own. Both plants flourish—and Rosie proves that she is definitely the best gardener. When Violet returns, she is taken aback to find herself on equal ground with Rosie and thanks her before focusing on areas where she is the best. Many children will relate to Rosie's feelings of jealousy and desire to be the best at something. The story would also be useful for the Violets of the world, who may not realize how their bragging affects others. With sweet, soft illustrations full of details that complement the text, Rosie and her diverse class of pink-cheeked friends are full of appeal. A solid addition.—Anna Haase Krueger, Antigo Public Library, WI - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
