    One thought on “Rosie the Raven

    1. Sue on said:

      What an interesting book, and so beautifully presented. There are five eggs in the ravens' nest and after four ravens hatch, from the fifth egg comes a little baby girl, Rosie. She is the ultimate in a different offspring but her parents and siblings accept her and she works to fit in, in spite of a lack of feathers.This book could give rise to many discussions of the meaning of "difference" or "family", what exactly it means to belong with others. I can imagine young children asking some intere [...]

      What a weird and interesting book. Rosie emerges from her egg in a raven’s nest. But she’s not like her brothers and sisters. I get the metaphor. (Or is it analogy?) But it’s a really different way to present it. Obvious, yet subtle. Like the simple, muted style of art. Overall, I’d recommend it. Thanks to NetGalley and Annick Press for a copy in return for an honest review.

      I would like to thank NetGalley and Annick Press for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Now, I have heard many stories that involve a human character being adopted by an animal family or being born with an animal family. So, when I found this interesting children’s book called “Rosie the Raven” which is written and illustrated by Helga Bansch on NetGalley, I just had to check this book out and it was a pretty sweet and short little read!The story starts off w [...]

      Understated and Elegant -- "Just the Way She Is"It strikes me that many allegorical "problem" books, and especially picture books, are not content to tell a crisp, small story. Rather, you get a flashy reveal at the end, or a twist, or high drama, or cryptic ambiguity. Not so here. The author tells a gentle and warm story with honest feelingD, GENERAL PREMISE SPOILER. Here, when five raven newborns emerge from their shells we are presented with four regular birds and little pink human-appearing [...]

      There are 5 eggs in the raven's nest, and from one of them hatches out Rosie, a beautiful little girl.Rosie loves be under her parents wings. She eats worms, flies and snails. She is happy and feels loved by her raven family. She only notices she's different because all the gossip other birds are doing. No beak, no feathers, no wings. She really wants to be like her siblings, so she tries everything she can think of, until she realizes how silly she is acting.Migration time comes, and since Rosi [...]

      I'm not quite sure why Rosie's egg was in the Raven nest to begin with but that is another story. Rosie is a part of the Raven family and she learns to accept her role in the nest. Good talking points about how people in the same family can be different. Rosie's whole family is very accepting of her differentness and that is the most important thing of all because if your family doesn't love you then life is that much harder all around.

    7. Elizabeth on said:

      Rosie the Raven is an adorable little read. The illustrations are incredibly charming, the translation works well, and the story itself is a precious tale of embracing your differences. I wish it had been a little bit longer, especially as I felt the ending was a bit abrupt, but there's only so many pages you can ask for from a picture book I guess. Overall, it was a charming read, and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a new picture book to read.

    8. Linda on said:

      According to the author/illustrator Helga Bansch, her art is “a collage of pencil drawing, acrylic paint, monotype and old maps”, and it is marvelous to see in this quirky story of four ravens born and one, little girl? Yes, it’s a little girl who tells her story, a happy one that is easy to tell by the terrific expressions. There is one wonderful double-page spread showing a line of animals which come to stare. They don’t say nice things and have lots of advice. She tries to follow all [...]

      Sometimes you open a book and fall into an art gallery. A landscape populated with images of wonder, enchantment, and possibility. A world where words seem almost irrelevant. Rosie the Raven is one of these. You can get lost in these images. You hardly need the words to figure out what is going on. The author and illustrator, Helga Bansch, is a teacher and counsellor of special needs children.Rosie's is a story about being different, about trying to fit in, about accepting who you are and making [...]

      This beautiful picture book, originally titled Die Rabenrosa for the Austrian edition, is a wonderful story of parents loving and accepting their children, even when they are very different from what is expected. High up in a raven's nest, eggs are hatching. One of them is definitely not like the others; it's a little, pink girl with no wings or feathers. When she becomes the subjects of insensitive whispers and comments, she tries her best to be like her brothers and sisters. Finally she realiz [...]

      I tend to love European illustrators; so different than American illustrators, more artistic I think. This is a little story of a girl who realizes she's different from her siblings yet accepts it with gusto.

    12. Earl on said:

      At first I was creeped out by the illustration of the newly hatched ravens and Rosie but this was a pretty sweet story about family. The premise is interesting enough that I wished it were a chapter book so I can read more of her adventures.

    13. Mary Dewley on said:

      A modern spin on Thumbelina, Rosie is such a spunky and wonderful girl born into a family of ravens. At first, she dislikes being different because of the negative comments the other animals make. She quickly decides their opinions are "silly" and she should just be herself. I loved her carefree attitude and how she took what at first was perceived as a negative (not being able to use her arms to fly) and turned it into something positive (being able to scratch her head, put worms into her mouth [...]

      Rosie is a little girl, but she is hatched in a bird nest along with her siblings, who are all ravens. She is different from her siblings, but everyone accepts her and she works to fit in with her bird family.

    15. Donna Mork on said:

      About accepting yourself even if you look different from what everyone "expects."

      Mr. and Mrs. Raven are waiting for their clutch of eggs to hatch. Five eggs are nestled in their nest and finally the breakout occurs. Strangely, four look perfectly normal but one looks vastly different. It doesn't house a baby bird but contains a tiny little girl. Not bothered by the oddity the ravens tuck the baby birds under their wings where they can stay warm and cozy.le girl included.It is noticed by all (Papa, Mama, siblings and visiting curious bird friends ) that this strange "little b [...]

      Rosie the Raven is a charming picturebook by Helga Bansch. In one raven's nest something strange has happened. When a clutch of eggs hatch, a pink girl emerges from one of the shells, along with her black raven siblings. Loving raven parents take their little Rosie just the way she is. In the beginning, Rosie tries to do everything her siblings do. She opens her mouth to receive worms from her parents, tries to caw until she is hoarse, and wildly flaps her arms in an attempt to fly. Rosie finall [...]

      Rosie is different. that really a problem though?Gorgeous illustrations and an educating story!

      Rosie the Raven is the story of a little girl who hatches from an egg along with four ravens. Mr. and Mrs. Raven raise her alongside her raven brothers and sisters, feeding her worms, flies, maggots, and snails. She mimicks their caws and screeches and flaps her arms but when other animals start commenting on how different she is she starts to realize it herself. She tries her hardest to be a better raven but then she decides that she doesn't need to change at all.This is a story about acceptanc [...]

      Het verhaal wordt door Rosa zelf, in eenvoudige bewoordingen vertelt. De tekst is in duidelijke letters afgedrukt. Het knappe is dat de opbouw van het verhaal heel zorgvuldig gedaan is. We worden op een heel speelse manier naar de ommekeer in het denken van Rosa geleid.De nadruk ligt natuurlijk op het anders zijn en dat te accepteren maar we krijgen tussendoor ook nog even mee hoe raven leven en mogen de hele cyclus van geboorte tot uitvliegen en naar warmere oorden vertrekken ook meemaken.En da [...]

    21. Leah on said:

      Another curiously offbeat European import. Pictures are a bit disconcerting but overall an intriguing, unique exploration of difference.

    22. Carla Johnson-Hicks on said:

      I am not sure how a little girl hatched from a raven's egg, but that is not the point of this story. Rosie hatches along with her 4 sisters and brothers. She looks different than they do, no feathers, no wings and she can not caw. She tries to be like them by eating worms and grubs as well as trying to caw until she was hoarse. Father raven brought her clothes to wear so she wouldn't get cold. Finally Rosie realizes that she is different and can do other things to help her family.This is a story [...]

      I received an ARC of this book from Annick Press Ltd. via Netgalley in exchange for a review.What a curious and strange story this is! Rosie is born to a family of ravens. She quickly learns that she is different than her parents and siblings. While this bothers her at first, and she tries to become like them, she soon realizes that it's okay to be herself. Her family loves and accepts her for who she is and her special-ness actually comes in handy to them later in the story.I'm not sure I reall [...]

    24. Laura on said:

      This is such a sweet little book. I love that the moral is not that if you are different you should find who you fit in with, but that you learn to be part of your family. What a wonderful message to give.Rosie is born into the family of ravens, but despite not having wings that fly, she finds that she has wings that grab and carry, and she is able to help her parents gather food. And she doesnt' need to fly, because she can cling to her parent's back.Thoroughly enjoyable. Lovely pictures and st [...]

    25. Ryan on said:

      Rosie was born from an egg in a nest of Ravens. She soon came to discover that she was different, but her differences made her unique, and she was who she was born to be. I think my favorite part of this book is that Rosie didn't notice her differences, or care about them until others pointed them out. The illustrations are amazing.

    26. Joan Marie on said:

      This precious picture book illustrates clearly how being different can be A-OK. The illustrations are unique in style reflecting the emotion so perfectly to the text. This could easily be added to a Parent/Teacher section as a reference for discussions related to adoption, the meaning of family, and about being different as being okay. Lovely.

      ages 4-6When a nest of raven's eggs hatches, one of them is a little girl - Rosie. As she grows up, she realizes that she's different, but she decides not to care. Sure she can't fly, but she can do other things. Let people stare, her parents don't care. It's a cute storymsradius/2016/12/cyb

    28. Allison on said:

      I'm not exactly sure what to say about this one. Some of the illustrations were a little creepy, while others were hauntingly beautiful. There were parts of the story that didn't seem to be developed or flow into one another. And I don't know who the intended audience is because I can't think of who I'd recommend this to

    29. Richelle Zirkle on said:

      When the eggs in the nest hatch open, out come the ravens and one very pink human looking Rosie.Artwork was cute and the story was sweet. It's a nice tale of accepting others and yourself despite differences, as Rosie's family loves her regardless and she learns it's okay to be who you are even if you don't quite fit in.I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
