Children's LiteratureSpending the day with Grandma usually entails trips to the movies, lemonade stands, and amusement parks. Today Rosie is going to spend time at "Haircraft," where Grandma works as a hair stylist. Rosie is not happy anticipating her day at "work," but things turn out to be great fun as she collects tips for doing errands, gets her own nails polished, and saves the day by finding a lost wig and a missing little boy. The bold, stylized illustrations are well matched with the text, although, I would have chosen different cover art. The strong colors and eclectic style add to the "fun" approach to a day spent in a salon. This story gives an accurate look at careers in the beauty industry and shows the loving relationship between Rosie and her Grandma. All of the ladies at the salon enjoy having Rosie spend the day with them. This is a good-natured display of a community situation in which everyone pitches in to get work done while having a good time and caring for each other. 2005, Tanglewood Press, Ages 3 to 5.
