about

Rose has a cold. And while Mother tucks her in for a nap, she tells Rose about growing up in Jamaica. She describes how she clickety clacked to school on mango heels and made a rag doll because she couldn't afford a store–bought chalk doll. And Rose knows she'll feel much better once she makes her own rag doll, too.

From Our Editors

While Mother tucks her in for a nap, she tells Rose about growing up in Jamaica. Too poor to have a store-bought chalk doll, Mother describes the wonderful times she had making her own fun. The cozy dialogue between mother and daughter and the exuberant paintings create a lyrical portrait of the unique joys of a Jamaican childhood. Full color.
