An American Indian Youth Literature Honor Title

A Best Book of the Year in Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Horn Book

A 2020 Boston Globe--Horn Book Award Honor Title

"Cree-Métis author/illustrator Julie Flett's smooth and lyrical words and gorgeous... images truly capture the warmth and solidarity of the female protagonists in this tender intergenerational friendship story."
--The Horn Book

When a young girl moves from the country to a small town, she feels lonely and out of place. But soon she meets an elderly woman next door, who shares her love of arts and crafts. Can the girl navigate the changing seasons and failing health of her new friend? Acclaimed author and artist Julie Flett's textured images of birds, flowers, art, and landscapes bring vibrancy and warmth to this powerful story, which highlights the fulfillment of intergenerational relationships and shared passions.

An activity guide is available at greystonebooks.com for FREE download. A brief glossary and pronunciation guide to Cree words that appear in the text is provided on the copyright page.

"Cycling from spring to spring, [Julie Flett's] subtle, sensitive story delicately traces filaments of growth and loss through intergenerational friendship, art making, and changing moons and seasons."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
