This children’s book also took root in New Mexico. It’s the story of a tiny baby born in a rose. And it too came to fruition from a real life experience. I had a pretty impressive rose garden at my NM house. One day while inspecting the roses I saw a humongous rosebud growing on a bush. I watched it everyday until it opened to the biggest rose I’d ever seen. I jokingly remarked that it was big enough to hold a small baby. Then my mind began racing and the story of The Rosebaby was born. It encompasses much of what I love in this world: babies, gardens (especially roses), doing the right thing, helping others, appreciating life.
The Rosebaby Authored by Jeffree Wyn Itrich
