A young boy and his sister try to help and old man wrap a damaged cherry tree as protection against the cold winter, hoping that for the first time the tree will blossom again.

The Cherry Tree was a good story. It is about a village, family, and tree that all have to rebuild after the war. I think this would be a great story to share with students about never giving up hope. This idea rings true through all of the characters of the story and I think this is also really important to show that nature and humans a like all need some hope to survive. I really enjoyed this story and I would enjoy using it in my future class room. ( )
