Sour Cherries is a fun picture books about family bonds and the struggles of leaving home.

This book is lighthearted and fun but also gently broaches the subject of war and becoming refugees. 

“I wonder if the trees remember 

Bibi’s summers with my mother.

The place they lived was far away. 

To be safe they could not stay.”

“I hope to visit there one day. 

But wars hold places locked away

Trees don’t recognize a border,

Older roots than lines on paper”

I love the bright illustrations in this book. Even my one-year-old granddaughter loves looking at the pictures in this book. I love the images of the father carrying his baby on his back. 

This book has simple rhymes that preschoolers can enjoy even while discussing themes of family, love, loss, and resiliency. 

This is the perfect book to add to your library.
