Rosabella is a beautifully illustrated fairytale by Gabriele Rose de Ginant. The beautiful jacket cover - showing Rosabella dancing - makes it a lovely gift for a young girl of any age. The fairytale story tells how Rosabella's body was created by the Four Elements of the world - earth, air, water, and fire to be fitting for her radiant soul. Rosabella loves to dance and dances everywhere. However, she eventually has to face the fact that she is still missing her "dream." So she goes on a quest to discover her "dream." While this is not a book about any religion, it exhibits great spiritual depth. I am eager to share this book with my granddaughter Bella. I am also pleased that proceeds from Rosabella products support scholarships for developing artists, dancers, writers, actors and musicians of all ages.
As a grandmother I am always looking for stories and books to share with my grandchildren. I showed this book to my daughter (Mother of Bella) and she exclaimed, "Oh, I want to read that to Bella" (age 12). So either my daughter or I will read "Rosabella" to Bella.
