    One thought on “The Little Rose of Sharon”

    1. I bought and read this story as it brought back memories of an animation I saw when I was very young. The message was so powerful that I never forgot it.

    2. My grandma got this one year for Easter. I was very young and wasn't able to read it, and never quite understood it when it was read to me, but even then I loved the pictures. They are beautiful! As I got older, I could read the book myself and understood it. I still loved the pictures, but I like the concept of the book and how the rose dropped all her petals to keep the birds egg warm and alive.

    3. On my "Favorite Easter books" list. This is a powerful yet masterfully kid-accessible story of self-donative love.
