Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3—This collection includes stories by Vera B. Williams about Rosa and her family—A Chair for My Mother (1982), Something Special for Me (1983), Music, Music for Everyone (1984), and A Chair for Always (2009)—plus Cherries and Cherry Pits (1986, all Greenwillow). In the first title, a young African-American girl tells of the sorrow of losing her home and belongings to a fire and the jar in which the family places all of their loose change to save for a lovely, soft armchair. In the first four tales, the chair is a character, symbolizing warmth, love, security, and family to the young narrator. In A Chair for Always, Rosa expresses her attachment to the now aging chair when her mother and grandmother begin thinking it might be time to find a new one. Martha Plimpton perfectly captures the tenderness and joy of these stories. This winning collection celebrates family and the power of hope.—Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT
