What I’m Reading: A Chair for My Mother

A Chair for My Mother by Vera B Williams is apparently the first in a series of picture books called The Rosa Books. Even though books 2 and 3 were written when I was a child, I’ve never read them. I need to remedy that!

The reason that Rosa’s mother needs a new chair is both sad and scary for young readers, but the overall message of the book is sweet and hopeful.

Yes, a chair. A wonderful, beautiful, fat, soft armchair. We will get one covered in velvet with roses all over it. We are going to get the best chair in the whole world.
