Overview

Neighborhood animals are very quick to take full credit for a delicious cherry crop, but also to blame each other when all the fruit runs out. Fortunately, loyal Rabbit and wise Woodchuck also enjoy the benefits of a strong friendship. As in Tales of Eva and Lucas, Quercia's artistic talent lends expression and charm to Berlin's engaging characters, this time in full color.

Todos los animales en la cercanía se apresuran a asumir responsabilidad por las frutas abundantes y deliciosas de un cerezo, pero también a culparse unos a otros en cuanto la fruta se acaba. Por suerte, el leal Conejo y la sabia Marmota también disfrutan los beneficios de una poderosa amistad. Como en Cuentos de Eva y Lucas, el talento artístico de Quercia les da expresión y encanto a los interesantes personajes de Berlin, esta vez a todo color.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite The Cherry Tree - El Cerezo by Delia Berlin is a bilingual story book about a cherry tree that gives delicious cherries to everyone around it. The neighborhood animals - rabbits, raccoons, squirrels and deer - are some of the animals that relish the delicious cherries. They all have some, but when the fruit is finished they start blaming each other. Now they are hungry and there is no more fruit on the tree. But wise Woodchuck has a big stash of cherries which he harvested. It is a story which conveys many messages to children - that of friendship, not to play the blame game, and how to appreciate nature's gifts.  The cherry tree with its cherries and all the animals will attract children to the story. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they give movement and life to the story. I love the fact that the author has given the cherry tree a personality of its own, and that makes it carry the story as well. The tree is also a symbol of giving. The theme of friendship, the blame game which we all play, and the other messages that are subtly conveyed by the author give the book another dimension. Because of its messages and concepts, it would be perfect for children's libraries and for school libraries. The story makes a good read-aloud theme and is excellent for story telling sessions. The book reminded me of Shel Silverstein's Giving Tree in many ways.

After enjoying Berlin's previous book, Tales of Eva and Lucas, I was happy to see this new story.  My granddaughter loved it just as much and did I!!!

Bilingual children usually have relatives and caretakers who speak just one of their two languages. It is helpful to the child and the family to have books that can be read by anyone, regardless of language. More are needed!

Please write more books like El Cerezo/The Cherry Tree ASAP! We are raising our daughter bilingual (English and Spanish) and both my wife and I speak to her only in Spanish (She gets English at school).  Unlike my wife, however, I am not a native Spanish speaker, so as the stories get more complicated, the best books for me to read with her are the bilingual books that have both the English and Spanish, so I can check myself before getting us both totally confused. Believe it or not, it's very hard to find a descent number of good books like this to feed a voracious book-lover like our girl, and harder still to find really good ones, with wholesome, intelligent, and engaging stories, good translations (this is big point: many bilingual books are filled with tons of errors or poor usages in one of the two languages, as if they were written in one and then just translated by Google!), and enjoyable illustrations.  This book is a rare find: lovely story, nice lessons to learn, perfect in both languages (my native-speaker wife confirms the Spanish is very good), sweet drawings.  PLEASE, CHILDREN’S BOOK WRITERS, GIVE US MORE OF THESE!  I hope this author and others will ramp up the production of good bilingual books like this before our girl runs out of books and has to put up with my clumsy translations.  We’ve already ordered this author’s other book Eva y Lucas and are looking forward to that.

Beautiful heartwarming story with a great moral that is not heavy-handed.  The illustrations are cute, nicely done, and creatively utilized to enhance the text.  Readers of a wide range of ages will enjoy it and it adds to the scare collection of quality biligual books on the market.
