Filled with beautifully illustrated pages and a message for young and old alike. Rose lives in a war stricken country and longs to be able to see her other aunts, uncles, and cousins but the war makes it so difficult for get togethers. Rose gets a surprise on her birthday that helps alot.
I can't imagine being away from family or having to live the life of Rose in a jungle but the story tells how Rose and her family overcomes and prevails and makes the most of life as they have it. They don't have all the cool things we have like air conditioning or electric stoves and television but yet the pages are filled with laughter and joy. Families actually sit down to eat together, kids actually have chores to do and everybody is your neighbor. Heck 50 - 100 years ago I may have been describing our way of life huh?
