A Chair for My Mother

Rosa, her Mama, and her Grandma live together, and after a fire destroys their home and possessions, their neighbors are able to provide most of what they need — except for a big, soft chair to relax in after a long day. So the three of them make a plan to save for a new one: Rosa saves all of her pennies, her mother saves all of the tips from her waitressing job, and her grandmother saves any change leftover from the market. Finally, when the jar is full of coins, they pick the perfect chair: covered in roses, and just as cozy as they've been dreaming of.

This beloved book about family strength, perseverance, and the value of striving for a goal is now available in a 25th anniversary edition! Williams' illustrations, with their vibrant colors and energetic patterns, received a Caldecott Honor, while her text is inviting and homey. It's a charming story about the value of work, the power of working together, and the resilience of a loving family.

Description

"Williams' illustrations are energetic watercolor paintings brimming with color and a cozy, indulgent expressionism. Intense roses, blues, yellows, and greens vie for attention in the pictures' blocky compositions, where natty patterning adds extra spice. A striking, offbeat backdrop for a loving story." — Scientific American
