Children Ages 6+ • 11 mins. • Unabridged • © 2013

Narrator Rachel Jacobs gently shares the story of an imaginative second-grader who is enthralled with creating who-knows-what from scavenged items. Jacobs narrates slowly, letting young listeners tune in to Rosie’s late-night brainstorms and dreams as well as her moments of confidence and despair. While rhyming couplets abound, Jacobs’s even-keeled pacing keeps the story in the foreground. As Rosie’s great-great-Aunt Rose, Jacobs radiates love, support, and wise words with just the right amount of emphasis to make Rosie’s confidence rise. What does young Rosie create for the elder Rose? Background music that builds to the climax of the story and a brief historical note about the role of women during WWII round out the production.
