Sometimes it’s so hard not to lie, but is lying worth it?
Little Rose wanted a bit of the delicious chocolate cake Mommy made just for her and did not have the patience to wait even though Mommy said the cake was for later. Little Rose took a big bite when Mommy wasn’t looking and tried to hide her misdeed. Now she felt so bad about lying and the joy of eating the cake was gone. Instead Little Rose was sorry and sad. Did Little Rose tell Mommy about her lie? What did Mommy say? Read the book and find out.
Kids are confronted with choices from very early on and it is important to teach them to choose right from wrong. Reading with or to little children is an excellent way to promote reading skills and at the same time foster good habits and behaviors. Little Rose’s story is one that espouses the value of honesty. Told in cute rhymes that are accompanied by adorable images, this book will no doubt entertain your kids while it teaches them an important lesson.
Shani Eichler, the sixteen-year-old author of this lovely book, is the second of six children. She hopes to entertain little kids everywhere with her stories, same as she does her little siblings.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
To write for children, means to understand children. It is to give voice to a language that will resonate with kids, and inspire their imagination and promote their love for reading.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
I would encourage writers to “write, write, write” about subjects you love and care about.
Shani Eichler is 16 years old and a junior in high school. She is the second of six children in her family and the oldest girl so she has a lot of experience taking care of children (especially since her older brother does NOTHING). Shani is an avid reader, skilled artist — though her father is yet to hang any of her paintings — and an aspiring author. Shani is also trained in first aid and CPR and actively volunteers for a local ambulance service. She plans to go to medical school and become a doctor, but not a pediatrician: Too many runny noses and sore throats! – Shani is a big fan of Grey’s Anatomy and House M.D.
As a sixteen year old, the second of six children, I have experienced and witnessed many kid antics. My siblings and I tried to deflect attention or hide our misdeeds, but being patient with a sense of humor our parents taught us lessons in the most effective ways. I wrote this book as a tribute to my parents especially and all the parents who guide their children and teach them important lessons without the drama and hurt feelings.
