Apple Mother

Written by Marjan Keshavarzi Azad; Persian/Farsi. Read book »

The imagery used in this book is purely delightful. I fell in love with the little apple right from the beginning. I love the story and the illustrations so much that I wanted to be that pine tree.

The Cherries in Paradise are Ripe

And if like me you adore making marmalades and jams with kids, you will find this book a treasure--one that touches your heart softly with hope and rays of light.
