Rose’s grandmother wants to teach Rose how to weave, but Rose is enjoying the beautiful day outside far too much to come in and learn. It is not until Grandma shows Rose how she has woven the elements of nature into her rug, that Rose wants to create a rug of her own. But now Grandma has spied a rainbow. Hand in hand, she and Rose head outside, and the next day, that rainbow reappears in Rosie's own rug.

Just as the grandmother teaches Rose to weave the beauty of nature into her rugs, so the author weaves into this story the themes of creativity, the interplay of art and life, and the important gifts that are handed down through generations of women.

When Wild Rose is won over, it’s because she looked at the rug and “saw life in its colors [and] felt peace in its pattern.” Wong’s illustrations, which appear to be a mix of pen and ink and watercolor, feature simply drawn figures and spare settings.

City Book Review

Though her grandmother asks her again and again to come learn how to weave, Wild Rose would rather run through the meadow, playing with the sheep, thrilling at the fear she feels at distant lightening, spinning in the wind, and dancing in the rain.
