Praise
"[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."
"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."
