She really is adventurous. She loves history, geography, and is eager to learn those in school.
Otherwise her mother wants she take different path. The mother reckons girls and women have tiny brain, might they not put such serious things in it. They should focus on embroidery things and learn how to be a nice lady so that they can be a good wife to rich Book Reviewed by IG: buku. They should focus on embroidery things and learn how to be a nice lady so that they can be a good wife to rich suitors.
She has different opinions. She is the woman Rose wanna be someday. She is clever and is fighting for women chance to have the same rights as men do.
I hope Rose can fight for herself to get good chances in the future. Dec 29, Anna Davidson rated it liked it Shelves: read , middle-primary-fiction , australian-history , australian-author.
A lovely story about growing up as a girl who loves cricket and learning in when society had different expectations for women. A great read for learning about Australian history through literature.

I randomly saw this in City Library the other day, and thought it looked cute - AND Australian, and I've been abroad for two years and am now craving everything Australian ever! So I decided to give it a go. And now I want to read the rest of the series, and then the other three "Our Australian Girl" series as well!
The story was so cute and fun and interesting, and so wonderfully Australian. She wants nothing more than to read books, to learn more than just sewing and French, to go to school - and maybe even university - to play cricket, to go into Cole's Arcade in the city, to wear pants, to climb trees, to ride on a tram. But her mother's plans for Rose do not include any of these things.
They include a stuffy old governess, fancy frocks and a new corset, and chauffeured drives to town because trams are for common people.
Then Rose's Aunt Alice - her father's younger sister - comes to town Alice was a teacher in New Zealand, first a governess and then she opened her own school - but she was run out of town by a couple of equally stuffy mothers who didn't agree with what Alice was teaching their daughters.
Alice is a cheerful, adventurous, trouser-wearing suffragette and she is awesome! She lets Rose read her books, and even one day takes her to the city - on a tram! Of course Rose is caught and the sparks all fly It's a lovely little story and I'm really looking forward to reading more about Rose, and her wonderful Aunt Alice!
The historical detail is just lovely as well, and as a girl who grew up on Cole's Funny Picture Books , I squeed when I recognised the Cole's Rainbow at the entrance to the Arcade. Feb 01, Melina rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens , historical-fiction , fiction , series , family , australian , paper-book , library-book , australian-women-writers , I absolutely loved this book.
Rose is a pampered, but overly restricted girl living in Melbourne in Her mother insists on governesses, corsets and becoming a proper lady. Rose is not allowed to play cricket with her brother, not allowed to read exciting books or learn about geography or history and certainly not allowed to catch a tram or explore the more exciting stores of Melbourne.
That is, until her exciting Aunt Alice a teacher comes to stay. Alice had exciting ideas such as women I absolutely loved this book. That is, until her exciting Aunt Alice — a teacher — comes to stay.
Alice had exciting ideas such as women being allowed to vote, being more involved in society and being able to use their brains. She takes Rose out on an adventure to a restaurant her mother a member of the Temperance League would never approve of, and a magical visit to Coles Arcade — to the disapproval of her mother. But will she ever be able to break free from the restrains that her mother places on her?
I adore this time period, so this book was always going to appeal. There were such big things going on in Australia at this time, with Federation looming and women beginning to gain power across the country and in New Zealand.
I am really looking forward to reading more of this one and finding out what happens next! This review originally appeared at Adventures of a Subversive Reader Sep 10, Sia rated it really liked it. I like this book because it teaches you perspective of pastence's people. Even though it is historical fiction, it tells you in the pastence, people thought it is boyish think to play sports if you were girl or women. This story is about a boyish girl Rose who likes playing cricket.
The problem is that her parents doesn't let her to play they didn't wanted to her to be boyish but suddenly, her Aunt came to her house and change the feeling so finally, she could play cricket.
I recommend this book I like this book because it teaches you perspective of pastence's people. I recommend this book to every on especially Girls!! Feb 03, Niamh Griffin rated it it was amazing Shelves: spec-fic-historical-fic , children-middle-grade. This wonderfully written book draws the reader into the past. I was almost able to taste the dust of a hot Australian day.
Set it early s it accurately describe the world of the upper class in Melbourne, highlighting the difference in society at the time. Rose is a loveable character, whose rouge behaviour is admirable.
Full of colourful description and interesting characters.
