It's Rosa's turn to spend the coins in the money jar: coins from Mama's tips, coins Grandma can span and coins Rosa earns now and then at the Blue Tile Diner. The child in A CHAIR FOR MY MOTHER looks at roller skates tries on clothing and imagines using a knapsack before she finds something which is exactly right on which to spend her birthday money. Bright watercolors and bordered pages illustrate the text of a family story full of love. (Ages 4-9)
