Once again, Rosie offers her wisdom with innocence and open curiosity in this third book in the series Rosie Knows.
Miss Polly’s pen continues to capture the adventures of an “ordinary dog” as she seeks to unravel the complexities of life.

What Rosie Knows explores unspoken issues and is skillfully written to allow the essential message to be available in a nonconfrontational form while opening conversation options with caregivers and teachers.
The ongoing theme of mindfulness in daily life encourages preteens to recognize their present moment as a living canvas awaiting their unique brush strokes to craft a life of their choice.
