    • I was touched by this book’s story. It’s a historical fiction story the author got inspired to write when she saw the documentary Anonymous Was a Woman. (I’ve added the book it was based on to my shelves.)Abiah Rose has siblings and they all have special talents. She is a good artist and enjoys painting and drawing. She is encouraged and praised for her artistic work, to a point. She is discouraged from signing her paintings because art isn’t an acceptable occupation for women. How she g [...]


    • Despite prevailing attitudes towards women in the 18th and 19th centuries, Abiah Rose perseveres in her conviction that art exists above any category that society can impose on it.With rich, folk art-inspired illustrations, author/illustrator Diane Browning crafts a fictional account of the likely history of many anonymous female artists from early America.Conforming to social norms of the day, members of Abiah's family dissuade her from signing her own work. "Best not, Abiah Rose," they would t [...]


    • Grade 1–4—Browning imagines the life of an early American artist, one of the many often anonymous women who followed what was then an unconventional path, traveling from town to town as itinerant portrait painters. The first-person narrative uses old-fashioned, homespun language to describe Abiah Rose's inspirations and environment. The understated story is balanced by truly lovely art. The color range and symmetries of the acrylic and colored-pencil compositions produce a calm and friendly [...]


    • My youngest daughter selected this book at random on the library shelves and offered it to me. "No thanks," I said, "but you're welcome to check it out." She did. Later her older sister requested if for a bedtime story. Three pages in I knew I loved this book.It's a story about a female artist who is told by her elders not to sign her paintings (for various reasons). She can't see any wrong in claiming her work and so paints a small rose in every piece she creates.Abiah Rose is a strong and resp [...]


    • Abiah Rose, a girl in 18th or 19th century American, becomes a portrait artist. Though her family is reluctant to let her develop her painting skills or sell or portraits, she perseveres to become an artist in her own right. The author includes a short but helpful glossary at the beginning of the book as well as an Author's Note and Further Readings. The illustrations also include Abiah's signature, a flower, which younger readers will enjoy finding on each page.A lovely book to use either durin [...]


    • I really enjoyed the exploration of women painters in the 18th and 19th centuries through the story of our fictional heroine. The illustrations are also sweet and add to a historical feel. I don't think that the book was really that exciting because it continues to depict the women that we see most often- white middle or upper middle class European-American women and girls while there are thousands of different types of women and different ideas of womanhood.


    • A lovely and inspirational look at the imagined life of a young female artist, Abiah Rose, in 19th century America. Girls are meant to marry, not work, but Abiah Rose's talent puts her in demand. Told by her father not to sign her work, she instead inserts a rose into each creation. Browning uses the more formal language of the period which may make this a fun read-aloud, and her acrylic and colored pencil illustrations absolutely glow.


    • Hadn't known before this--though of course, it makes sense--that women weren't really encourage/allowed to be artists in 18th and 19th century America. So blessed to live now in America where I am allowed & encouraged to do whatever I want. Loved the illustrations and the heroine's go-after-it attitude. Informative without being pompouse or didactic.


    • During the 18th and 19th centuries, women were discouraged from signing their name to their art work and even discouraged from creating art. Abiah, through her story, is determined to create her art, sign it, and open her own shop. The story shows her journey to achieve that goal. Well written and illustrated, an excellent story about perseverance.


    • Abiah Rose has always wanted to paint pictures.“Best not, Abiah Rose,” everyone says. Serious painting is “not girl’s work.” Best not show your paintings. Best not sign them either. But still Abiah continues to make her mark on each of her paintings: a small, hidden rose.()


    • An interesting story of women artists in the 18th and 19th century and how they were not taken as seriously as their male counterparts. And how Abaih Rose found a way to put her unique signature into her work even if she wasn't allowed to sign her name.


    • Intersting subject but, I found the writing clunky and the pictures only so so which, is a bit sad given the subject.


    • A gentle story that depicts a side of early american life that we don't usually find in children's books. The art was perfect for the story.



    • A good historical fiction book for the classroom to discuss the role or women and determination. Pictures are well done. The story is a little flat and it is hard to really cheer for Abiah.
