Book Review: Rose and the Wish Thing
Rose and the Wish Thing: A Magical Story That Helps Children Learn They Can Often Find Answers To Their Problems Right Under Their Nose
We love adding new books to our home library. This time we got the chance to read Rose and the Wish Thing: A Journey of Friendship. This was such a great book to share with my little ones. In this story we meet Rose who moves to a new town and suffers the loneliness of being “the new kid”. The story is warm and nurturing with a large family trying to comfort Rose, a rambling house with a garden, and a big furry dog. I really liked the watercolor illustrations.
Rose and the Wish Thing is available at…
Rose feels alone in a new town. Everything is different and strange. She wishes, she searches, but she’s not even sure what for. Then, from somewhere far away, someone—or something—begins a journey. And maybe, just maybe, Rose and the Wish Thing will find each other.
In an enchanting and poetic narrative with achingly beautiful illustrations, Rose and the Wish Thing celebrates the power of imagination and resilience, even when things seem too hard. It is a story that will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.
