A little girl has to stay with her grandparents because her mother is sick. She starts working in her grandparents garden to grow the best sweet pea blossoms for the flower competition. There are challenges and set backs, but the little girl learns to weather the storm until her mother is better again.
This book was so cute! The little girl is so sweet and vulnerable, but she finds that inner strength and starts to gain confidence in her gardening abilities. The grandparents are loving and kind, and the whole atmosphere of the garden is soothing. I love all the positive messages in this book!
The illustrations are absolutely beautiful! I love the colorful art style, and the elegant flowers, and the fluffy cats. The design of each character is lovely. The little girl wears these huge rainboots that make her look even more small and fragile. The grandpa wears old-fashioned glasses, and grandma has her hair in curlers. Adorable!
