A Native American girl gardens with her grandfather, who helps to raise her, and learns about life and loss when he dies, and then speaks to her from a dream where he is surrounded by blue roses.
A young girl and her grandfather form a special bond which is symbolized by the garden they tend together. Color illustrations accompany the text.


Ruminator Review
"[T]HE BLUE ROSES is less notable for its originality--foreshadowing throughout the text makes it abundantly clear that Papa will die--than for its honest and moving portrayal of the relationship between grandfather and granddaughter, of the process of grieving, and of passing down the love for tending the earth. Amy Córdova's illustrations incorporated vivid, powerful blocks of color that help soften some serious moments." - Antonia Gray Summer 2002

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The affectionate relationship between grandfather and granddaughter is touchingly depicted and it's a refreshingly contemporary portrait of a Native American family....This is a quitely respectful book about loss, survival, and legacy." - Deborah Stevenson September 2002
