Story Time: Misa Saburi presents Sakura’s Cherry Blossoms
Greenlight is excited to host a special story time, just in time for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Sakura Matsuri Festival! Illustrator Misa Saburi presents Sakura’s Cherry Blossoms, a lyrical and lovely new book about immigration, family, and friendship. When Sakura arrives in the States, what she misses most of all about Japan is her grandmother and the cherry blossom trees. In this strange new place, will she ever feel at home? With help from her new friend Luke, and the magic of spring time, Sakura will discover that a sense of belonging can bloom. After the reading, Misa will guide children in an interactive craft: making their own cherry blossom postcards! Before you go to the April 28 Sakura Matsuri festival at our neighbor, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, join Misa at this special cherry blossom story time! Ages 3 to 8.
