Why read it?

1 author picked Rou and the Great Race as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This book is the first of its kind. It is a dystopian picture book. Flowers are almost non-existent. It’s a rarity. So, every year, there is an annual race. Rou wants to win, but not for her. She wants the flowers for her grandmother. I love that she put someone before her. This book is gorgeously illustrated and the message of what you would do to please the ones you love is abundantly clear. I love this book.

From Winsome's list on children being unapologetic.
