The Yellow Rose is a nice book that teaches about hard work, that the simple answer may be the best when all else fails, to enjoy what you do, and that hard work may bring unexpected gifts.
A wonderful story for all ages, not only for the intended age group.
One day a gardener living on a tiny island discovers a surprise growing in his garden: A beautiful yellow rose that will never die. Every day he takes care of this perfect rose until men from a big city come to the island and convince the gardener to share the rose with the world. The men become very rich while the yellow rose becomes very weak. The greedy men want to destroy the rose since it can't make them anymore money. Can the gardener save the special rose that he loves so much?
