Together Miss Mamie and Lucy plant a paperwhite bulb. Through the long, dark winter days they nurture the bulb and wait for it to bring a sign of spring. In the waiting hours, they also cultivate a gentle relationship between young and old, as sweet and lovely as the delicate white narcissus flowers that bloom from a simple bulb.
As she did in Rabbit’s Bedtime, Nancy Elizabeth Wallace has combined just the right amount of thoughtful text with lovingly prepared cut-paper illustrations to make a book that is at once sweet and poignant.
