Book Review: The Little Rose by Sheri Fink.


Interview with Sheri Fink author of The Little Rose.

The Little Rose by Sheri Fink and illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam

About the Book: The Little Rose is a timeless, heartwarming story about embracing who you really are. Finely detailed, irresistible illustrations bring to life this endearing story of the Little Rose growing amongst a bed of weeds. Teased by the ugly weeds around her, the Little Rose nearly gives up but then learns to accept and love herself for what she really is, a beautiful rose.


My Review: Little Rose grew amongst other flourishing weeds and didn’t quite fit in and never could understand why the other plants treated her differently. They made fun of her, talked behind her back. She tried to be nice to them and fit in but they kept treating her badly.

This is one book you can’t wait to share with your children. The little Rose is about overcoming bullying and accepting who you are. It will not only inspire but encourage your children to learn to surround themselves with positive people; people that will build them up not tear them down.

Just like the book said, “Just like Little Rose, you are unique, special and beautiful. Seek friends who appreciate you for who you really are and encourage you to be your best”.

This story is beautifully illustrated by Mary E Washam who made use of bright colors to help tell the story. If you are currently working with children dealing with the issue of bullying then this is a great book to recommend.

  2. Its amazing that bullying has gotten so out of control. I’m thankful for anything books and movies that teach children that this is not normal or acceptable.
