Review:
Rosa lives with her grandmother and mother, who works as a waitress. They have a big glass jar into which they and other family members put spare change. For her birthday Rosa gets to spend the contents on a gift for herself. What will she choose? Rollerskates? A dress? A daypack? Rosa finally chooses something that will bring pleasure to her friends and family as well as herself. Fans of Vera B. Williams will recognize her trademarks: vibrant watercolor illustrations and affectionate renderings of the simple pleasures of people who don't have a lot of money, but intensely enjoy what they have.
