Story depicts the importance of nature and a special tree. It represents the continuance of life travelling through seasons.

With hope and tender care from two children and an old man, an old cherry tree blossoms for the first time after a war has ravaged the country.

Does not shield children from the realities of war, but offers hope for a better tomorrow.

Ikeda's use of nature to describe life changes is truly telling of the great griots. A nurturing book that will engage parent and child.
