Gr 4-6‘In the third entry in this series, Rose, age eight, adjusts to life in the Ozarks with her parents, Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder. Readers experience the year 1895 along with Rose as she picks apples at the neighbors' farm and helps to prepare sorghum molasses. They feel her jealousy as the hired hand, Abe, goes courting, and join in her dilemma when she is unsure whether she is poor or rich. When Rose's father makes her a sled for Christmas, she is overjoyed. Then she discovers that Abe's little brother has received nothing as both his parents are dead. Can she sacrifice her joy for Swiney? The characters are finely drawn; the era and the setting are alive as well. The simple charcoal drawings are compatible with the slow, quiet thread of the narrative. This book is a must for anyone who enjoys Laura Ingalls Wilder's ``Little House'' series (HarperCollins) and wishes to follow up with this contemporary installment, but it also stands on its own quite well.‘Katrina Yurenka, Jaffrey Public Library, NH
