Rosa's Grandma is sick in bed, and the big chair in the living room is usually empty now. So is the family's money jar. Rosa is worried: how can she help? One thing that makes Grandma feel better is hearing Rosa play music with her friends. She says it makes her feel like a girl again, dancing at a party. This gives Rosa an idea. If Grandma loves their music, maybe people would pay to hear them! And that's the beginning of the Oak Street Band.

Un libro que acompana el Libro de Honor Caldecott "Un sillon para mi mama"

Hay ciertas cosas que Rosa sabe. Sabe que se muere de ganas de conocer a su primito, que esta por nacer en cualquier instante en el piso de arriba. Sabe que crecera y se mudara a otro lugar y quiza asista a la universidad y hasta llegue a ser la presidenta de los Estados Unidos. Y sabe que ese sillon--ese maravilloso, hermoso y querido sillon--el sillon de su mama, siempre estara alli.

"Siempre."

Asi es.

Forrado de terciopelo y salpicado de rosas, listo para quien sabe que aventura nueva . . .
