On one autumn afternoon, Thomas thinks that he hears a whisper in his grandmother's garden and discovers a bond that crosses generations.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K?When Thomas implores Nana to come outside and play with him, she informs him that she is too old. Exploring her garden wistfully, he hears voices in the wind. After discovering a stuffed rabbit in an old chest of drawers in the shed, he meets Rose, a young girl who tells him the toy's name and shows him all the secret places. Late in the afternoon, she fades through the gate and disappears. With its saccharine story line and soft, deliberately out-of-focus pastel scenes, Nana's Garden is likely to appeal more to grandmothers than to children. Most youngsters would expect grandma to play if she is mobile, and would find a garden ghost, especially one who shows them dogs' graves and who tires quickly, to be a poor substitute. For grandmothers with vim and vigor, stick with Margaret Wild's Our Granny (Ticknor & Fields, 1994) and Patricia Polacco's Thunder Cake (Philomel, 1990).?Wendy Lukehart, Dauphin County Library, Harrisburg, PA

From Booklist:

Ages 4-7. When Thomas asks his grandmother to play with him in her autumn garden, Nana replies "I'm too old to play." While in the garden that day, Thomas meets a little girl named Rose (Nana's name), who knows the garden's secret spots, tells Thomas the name of the toy bunny he found in the potting shed, and mysteriously becomes more translucent as she leaves him. When he returns to Nana's open arms, Rose's picture, with the bunny, is on the chest in the house. Is Rose the spirit of young Nana or a child who might have died? Readers are left free to guess and to enjoy the gold-and-green garden world and Thomas' freedom to play imaginatively, all nicely evoked in the pictures. Mary Harris Veeder
