Grandma's Gloves

A Picture Book by

This is a sensitive, beautifully illustrated portrait of a universal rite of passage: losing a beloved grandparent. Grandma is always on her knees in the dirt, with her gardening gloves on, lovingly tending the plants and talking to her roses. And when the weather is hot, she takes the hose and waters her 'most special flower of all' - the little girl narrating this touching story. But when Grandma dies, sadness threatens to overwhelm everything - until the little girl remembers all her beloved Grandma has taught her...and resolves to keep the garden in bloom. It is the first picture book by Cecil Castellucci, known for her YA and Minx graphic novel series, "The Plain Janes".
