Review from American Bookseller:
This is a heartwarming story of a little girl with a big dream and great faith to go with it. Even when everyone in town tells Wanda that the scrawny bush she keeps nurturing is not going to produce any roses, she finds a way to make it happen. What really stands out here is Wanda’s indomitable spirit and the concern and kindness everyone shows for her. Well-defined character illustrations and clever page design. –S.L.
