Sakura’s Cherry Blossoms   

By Robert Paul Weston, Illustrated by Misa Saburi (tundra – 2018)                      Sakura loves warm spring days and loves sitting underneath the cherry blossom trees with her grandmother. But now Sakura and her parent are moving to America, and her grandmother staying back in Japan. Told in a series of poems inspired by traditional Japanese verse, this story of one little girl’s immigration experience explores the loneliness of a new home, the healing power of friendship and the joy of finding the familiar in unexpected place.
