Product Details

Praise

“Bottner offers a heartwarming story of a young girl moving to a new house and a too-empty room. . . Spiegel’s softly colored watercolors are the perfect complement to the text, showing the transformation of both Rosa and her room. . . A welcome addition sure to calm the worries of youngsters facing a similar situation.”—Kirkus Reviews

“This exploration of what makes a house a home is perfect for kids facing a move or feeling lost in a new situation. The text is understated, but the watercolor illustrations ably capture the upheaval of settling into a strange place. . . An optimistic, encouraging book that will help make a strange and scary situation less so.”—Booklist

“A reassuring read for girls anticipating a move.”—Publishers Weekly

“Through simple language and age-appropriate details, Bottner does a good job of capturing a child’s point of view. Done in watercolor, gouache, and India ink, the illustrations enhance the mood of the text. The image of Rosa’s empty room, filled with only a few pieces of furniture and shaded with solid pastel washes, compares nicely to the final result, a space bursting with bright patterns, colorful clutter, and two friends jumping on the bed. There are many books about moving to a new house but few describe taking a space and making it one’s own in such a positive and creative manner.”—School Library Journal
