Every spring Rosalie, a Native American girl, and her grandfather sow tiny seeds that blossom into bright flowers. A red rosebush, planted under Rosalie’s bedroom window when she was born, is later joined by pink and yellow ones “to make a sunset,” Papa tells her. Rosalie asks for a blue bush, to represent the sky, but Papa explains that roses do not come in blue. When he dies the following winter, Rosalie’s blue rosebush comes to her in her dreams as a symbol of love, memory, and transcendence.

From the Inside Flap:

On the day Rosalie is born, Papa, her grandfather, plants a red rosebush under her bedroom window. As Rosalie grows, Papa teaches her to love gardening, and on her ninth birthday, he gives Rosalie her own garden plot. When some of Rosalie's plants die, Papa tells her to dig them back into the soil so the other plants will grow strong. "That's what I like about gardens," Papa says. "Nothing ever really leaves."

After Papa dies, Rosalie misses him greatly. One night she dreams of a garden with a trellis of beautiful blue roses, and the vision of that dream shows Rosalie a way to keep Papa in her heart forever.

With gentle words and magical images, this contemporary Native American story tenderly embraces the natural cycle of life. Winner of Lee & Low's first New Voices Award, The Blue Roses is a touching story that resonates with all who read it.
