Publisher Description:

This classic and award-winning picture book was written and illustrated by the celebrated Vera B. Williams and was named a Caldecott Honor Book by the American Library Association.

A tender knockout . . . it's rare to find much vitality, spontaneity, and depth of feeling in such a simple, young book.--Kirkus Reviews

After their home is destroyed by a fire, Rosa, her mother, and grandmother save their coins to buy a really comfortable chair for all to enjoy. A Chair for My Mother has sold more than a million copies and is an ideal choice for reading and sharing at home and in the classroom. A superbly conceived picture book expressing the joyful spirit of a loving family.--The Horn Book
