While helping take care of his great-aunt's rose bush, young Douglas learns about family members who have done the same, starting with his great-great-grandfather, and comes to see how each is still part of that bush.

Aunt Mary tells Douglas that the rosebush contains a little bit of him- but he can't see it! She tells him about how her grandfather planted the bush and instructed his children to look after it. Mary tells of her nephews that grew up around the rosebush and who had families who could also grow to take care of the rosebush. Douglas learns of his family's roots and how they are a part of him. Cute concept but the author spends too much time on details about the history and not enough time on Douglas understanding the metaphor of the bush. I like format of illustrations on one page, text on the other, though. For ages 4-6.
