Book Review #1179
Eliza's Cherry Trees: Japan's Gift to America by Andrea Zimmerman, illustrated by Ju-Hong Chen
Rating: three stars (out of four)
I really enjoyed this book! The story centers around the Cherry Blossoms in Washington D. C. and showcases their history and how they came to decorate the landscape. It was cool to see the story from Eliza's perspective. The illustrations were lovely - they really added to the text and brought the book to life. It was a sweet story and I'd recommend it, especially for people interested in D. C. history.
