            By Cecil Castellucci
            Illustrated by:Julia Denos

            This book captures love and loss
            wonderfully. Castellucci illustrates how
            close grandmothers and granddaughters can
            become.
           
            Grandma loves to tend to her plants and
            blossoms. She talks to her roses. She
            loves to spend time with her grandma who
            loves to water her flowers. She even
            waters the little girl on warm summer
            days.
           
            One day, Grandma becomes ill and dies.
            The little girls realizes that her
            Grandma can’t care for her any longer.
            She feels sad about that until she
            remembers all that her Grandma taught
            her. She then realizes in that moment
            that her cup overflows with love and
            gratitude.
           
            The illustrations are very realistic.
            My niece was mesmerized by the sadness of
            the cover of the book. The illustrations
            capture the sadness and happiness of each
            of the moments of the book with each
            double page spread.
