I really enjoyed this story! The main focus of the book was, of course, Sakura, or cherry blossoms, and their appearance in different parts of Japan. I was surprised to find myself so interested in a book about flowers!
I highly recommend this book to Japanese 1 students as it is almost completely understandable. This is due party to the books great use of pictures, which provide context when needed. The book uses a lot of the sentence structures that we see in class and is an excellent source of practice.
