In 1912 the people of Japan sent the United States more than 3,000 cherry trees as a gift of freindship. Gratefully accepted by the Taft administration and planted in Washington, DC for the enjoyment of the American people, these trees have been a symbol of renewal and spring ever since.
Children will love this rhyming picture book that explains how the trees got the US and how we celebrate their beautiful blooms each year. Read this book with your favorite young person year-round for a primer in tradition and international diplomacy.
