    Such a gentle, beautiful story! This book echoes traditions; the sense of repetition of heartfelt traditions that make us. The annual trip to the mulberry tree is about far more than harvesting fruit to make pies. It’s about family; about honouring the familiar and the everyday. It’s about knowing that some things remain consistent in an ever changing world. Told in the little girls’ voice, we get a genuine sense of excitement, of knowing there are some things that can be counted on and the feel Such a gentle, beautiful story! This book echoes traditions; the sense of repetition of heartfelt traditions that make us. The annual trip to the mulberry tree is about far more than harvesting fruit to make pies. It’s about family; about honouring the familiar and the everyday. It’s about knowing that some things remain consistent in an ever changing world. Told in the little girls’ voice, we get a genuine sense of excitement, of knowing there are some things that can be counted on and the feeling of happiness that radiates out of this knowledge. All this told with an economy of flowing, lyrical language. The descriptions of simple things like Mum lighting up the house and warming the oven, the sensation of sweet, sticky juice covering your hands, the journey there are back again are brief, but bring satisfaction and warmth to a simple tale. Lovely, happy illustrations with a palette that varies to match the time of day and surrounding locations are so content and joyful. Tender, warm, moving and so engaging. A real gift of love.

    I received this from Walker Books recently after seeing it on Twitter a few times and falling in love with the cover illustration. Got a chance to savour it this afternoon! A beautiful little story about a young girl and mother who take an annual trip to ‘their’ tree, through a town on a bus and a bit of a walk. There is a simple rhyming structure throughout which gives a pleasant pace to the story, the pace matching the journey and the shared experience.

The illustrations by Chuck Groenink beautifully match the story, feeling very late summer / autumnal and give the whole a very traditional feel to it. A wonderfully sweet and warming story, felt like a hug throughout, and scanned really well when I read it out loud.

    Very sweet (pun intended) story of a mother and daughter picking mulberries together. I loved the art and colors, which were soft and comforting. This book could be nice as a bedtime story or for a family about to bake something together. I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.

    This is a sweet story with a gentle rhyme of a mother and daughter going mulberry picking. They ride the bus, pick and eat the fruit, have a picnic, go home and bake a pie. (There is no father pictured).
