This is a 2014-2015 YHBA picture book nominee. The story focuses on Violet, who likes to be the center of attention, and Rosie, who has a quieter personality. Rosie gets tired of hearing about how Violet is the best at everything, and she sees a chance to claim the spotlight when the class grows their own pea plants. Will Rosie make the right choices, and will she be the best?

The reading level for this book is 3.0, so it is for older picture book readers. The ending is very subtle and will probably go over the heads of younger readers. I gave this 3 out of 5 stars. ( )

This story is about a little girl who who is jealous of the attention that her classmates are receiving. When she finally gets recognized she begins to feel much better about everything. I would recommend this book to children 3-6

Story of a quiet little girl that always feels overshadowed by a classmate and finally gets her moment by being exactly who she is meant to be and doing the right thing.

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.
