Let me say, before we start out, that this is a wordy book. It's definitely more suited for the older end of the 4-8 crowd.This is a story of a young artist. She draws three pictures of three people, and tells the stories of how they eat cherries on three occasions.Then she finally tells her own story, and her own plan, about how she intends to save the pits from her own cherries and plant them, until there is a "forest of cherry trees" she can share with the whole world.Simple, strong story. The young nieces sit for it, and I love it too.

This is an excellent book. It is full of colorful picutres and contains good messages. It is all about a girl and her drawings. While this girl draws she tells stories. I can't praise this book enough.
