Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a money jar sit the coins that Rosa, Mama and Grandma have been saving to buy a treat. When they decide that Rosa should buy a treat only for herself, the girl isn't satisfied until she finds a present all can enjoy. PW found it ``sheer joy to spend more time with one different happy family, depicted in sparkling, childlike watercolors.'' (4-8)
