This story does a good job with connecting with kids about their hard work being acknowledged and how that helps their self confidence and their value of themselves. Rosie's plant may not have grown as fast as all of her classmates, but she was still proud of her work and the growth of her plant.

All children deserve a chance to shine, even those who don’t loudly proclaim their achievements. And not every perfect child is likable. Barton’s animated sketches vividly and realistically tell a much more complicated story than in “Mine!” without losing any of the emotional expressiveness that book conveyed so well.
