Hay ciertas cosas que Rosa sabe. Sabe que se muere de ganas de conocer a su primito, que está por nacer en cualquier instante en el piso de arriba. Sabe que crecerá y se mudará a otro lugar y quizá asista a la universidad y hasta llegue a ser la presidenta de los Estados Unidos. Y sabe que ese sillón—ese maravilloso, hermoso y querido sillón—el sillón de su mamá, siempre estará allí.

Siempre.

Así es.

Forrado de terciopelo y salpicado de rosas, listo para quién sabe qué aventura nueva . . .

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
When does an armchair become a member of the household? It becomes an extended family member when it has been there as a part of the family through the rites of passage. In this Spanish translation, Rosa, the main character, shares her imaginary wanderings as she awaits the impending arrival of her cousin. The velvet colored armchair patterned with roses has been there through much of her life, so why would mom and grandma try to get it reupholstered or replaced? The piece of furniture makes her think of her life, family, and friends after all. This book is a companion to A Chair for My Mother. The text is not intended for a beginning Spanish reader but is suitable for a more experienced reader. The watercolor illustrations and collages lend to Rosa's story. This book captures the imagination of a child and how people and inanimate objects become a part of one's life. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Rosa, the young narrator of the other books about the classic Chair for My Mother, returns for another visit with her family and friends. Her mother still works at the Blue Tile Diner, and Rosa and her grandmother wait up for her in the well-worn chair. The drama here concerns the birth of her Aunt Ida and Uncle Sandy's baby. Since they live upstairs and have decided to have the baby at home, Rosa is very excited and impatient to have to wait downstairs during the birth. Drowsing in her "lucky chair," she imagines all the things she might do with the baby. She is then invited upstairs to meet her new cousin. Everyone is happy helping with the baby, especially Rosa. But her grandmother thinks that the chair is too shabby for him. Rosa, however, remembers the chair's history, and wants no changes. "…wherever I go, this chair goes too!" she insists. Her mother's love stays with her as well. Gouache paintings effectively express the emotions of this family affair. Williams depicts the interactions in her unsophisticated style, setting the scenes in decorative borders that add to the comforting security. The overstuffed chair with its flower-decked cover is not only an actor, but closes the tale with Rosa comfortably sprawled across both arms. The heart-warming story is also available in Spanish as Un sillon para siempre in both trade and paper binding. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
