Sakura lives in Japan with her family and grandmother, Obaachan. Sakura and Obaachan love to spend time together under the cherry blossom trees. But one day, Sakura must move to America. She misses Obaachan and the cherry blossoms. Sakura has to learn a new language and make new friends. Sakura makes friends with a boy named Luke. Luke helps Sakura learn English and makes her feel at home. One day, Sakura needs to go back to Japan to visit Obaachan because she is very sick. When Sakura comes back to America, she feels very sad because she misses Obaachan so much. Luke helps Sakura feel better and has a special surprise for her in the spring.

I really liked reading Sakura’s Cherry Blossoms. I like how close Sakura and Obaachan are. My Yaya lives very far away, like Obaachan. I only get to see her every two years. I know how much Sakura misses Obaachan, and this book makes me miss spending time with my Yaya. I really liked the illustrations. The people and backgrounds don’t have a lot of detail, but they’re still nice to look at. The cherry blossoms are drawn with smudges of pink and look very beautiful. I would recommend this book to kids who miss their grandparents or to kids who have moved to a new place and feel lonely.
