2010 Award
Aunt Mary's Rose
( by Douglas Wood/ illus. LeUyen Pham, Candlewick $16.99 Score: )

A rosebush that has grown for generations in the family garden comes to represent the bonds between generations. Young Douglas does not understand what Aunt Mary means when she tells him that there is a bit of himself in the special bush they are caring for and vice a versa. Aunt Mary tries to explain by telling him the long and often melancholy history of the rose bush. The paintings are beautifully touched with time past. This is a story that you may want to share when a senior member of the family is ill or dying.
