"Bottner offers a heartwarming story of a young girl moving to a new house and a too-empty room... Spiegel's softly colored watercolors are the perfect complement to the text, showing the transformation of both Rosa and her room... A welcome addition sure to calm the worries of youngsters facing a similar situation."—Kirkus  Reviews

"This exploration of what makes a house a home is perfect for kids facing a move or feeling lost in a new situation.  The text is understated, but the watercolor illustrations ably capture the upheaval of settling into a strange place... An optimistic, encouraging book that will help make a strange and  scary situation less so."—Booklist

"There are many books about moving to a new house but few describe taking a space and making it one's own in such a positive and creative manner."—School  Library Journal
