Kaiah creates her own treasure in a beaded garden that Grandma would have loved.

On a cold and grey day, Kaiah wakes up wishing she wasn’t in this new house, in a new town. She misses her grandmother’s warm kitchen and sunny garden. But Kaiah still has her treasure box of beadwork they made together . . .  and so creates her own colourful connection to what she thought was lost. Their new garden becomes a treasure that is full of colour and love.

A special section at the end explains about beadwork and how it is an enduring art and form of cultural expression for many Indigenous people.
