Overview

When a beloved grandmother becomes ill and is no longer able to be in the sun, her granddaughter is inspired to create a garden she can enjoy. She and Poppa work together in secret to transform Nana's garden into a night-blooming oasis, a place where she can be with the creatures and plants that bring her happiness. As they work with seeds, trowels, and wheelbarrows to cultivate moonflowers, star jasmine, and other luminous, pale, sweet-smelling plants, they discover the sensory beauty of the garden at night. They learn to listen for the call of the cicadas, the songs of the night-jars, and the scampering of a family of raccoons. Everyone in the family is enchanted by the healing power of the shadow garden, a feast for all the senses and a true gift of love. Gardening facts and tips accompany the vibrant illustrations, which were created by children who are battling cancer.
