From mother-daughter team Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton comes a celebration of family, tradition and discovery, and an ode to mothers, grandmothers and the children they love.

Grandma Dorothy shared her love of gardens with her daughter, Hillary, and her granddaughter, Chelsea. She taught them that gardens are magical places to learn, exciting spaces for discovery, quiet spots to spend time with family and beautiful areas to share stories and celebrate special occasions. But most of all, she taught them that in her gardens, her love grew and blossomed.

In this inspiring and heartwarming mother-daughter story, Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton team up to show readers how sharing the things we love with the people we love can create powerful, everlasting bonds between generations.

Praise for Grandma's Gardens -

"A deeply affectionate tribute to the bounty of nature and the love of gardening." --Publishers Weekly
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In a tale that spans three generations, Hillary Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, honor Grandma Dorothy, the matriarch of their family and a master gardener who left an indelible impression on their hearts. Grandma Dorothy's love of gardening inspired a tradition of togetherness, learning, and appreciation. Hillary and Chelsea contemplate their individual childhoods, making insightful reflections on every page as they note Grandma Dorothy's adventures and the impact she continues to have. In time, family traditions bloom from Grandma Dorothy's journeys. The narration shifts between Hillary and Chelsea, noticeable not only through the writing but in changes to the text's color as well. Illustrations depict astonishing landscapes in color palettes that align with the story's rhythm; through a minimalist approach, a stunning level of intricacy is achieved. Words of wisdom swirl across the pages, helping readers find clarity. Filled with mindfulness, the story inspires children to reflect on family and keep memories alive."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The mother-daughter team shapes a deeply affectionate tribute to the bounty of nature and the love of gardening they both shared with the late Dorothy Rodham, Hillary's mother and Chelsea's grandmother, here mentioned by her first name. On each spread, the authors share a singular memory of gardening with Grandma Dorothy at various points in their lives: "I remember being so proud that Grandma asked me to help her care for the azaleas," recalls a young Chelsea; Hillary, reminiscing about her mother gardening into her 90s, notes, "Watching my mom enjoying our garden and tending to it gave me as much joy as it gave her." Less effectual than these personal recollections are accompanying platitudes ranging from obvious ("Gardens give us food") to extraneous ("Gardens are places to share stories"). Lemniscates (Birds) gracefully marks the passage of time in tranquil mixed-media pictures showcasing the changing seasons and the richly hued flora, vegetables, and fruit they bring, the maturing appearance of each character, and, ultimately, the addition of Chelsea's children to the cheerful gardening brigade. Ages 4--8. (Mar.)"
