Picture Book Review: When the Sakura Bloom

When the Sakura Bloom by Narisa Togo

When the Sakura Bloom
by Narisa Togo

5 out of 5 stars

People caught up in the hustle and bustle of the city stop to notice the cherry blossoms as the trees begin to bloom in the Spring. It’s time for the Sakura Festival. People have picnics under the trees. There are food stalls set up and lanterns are hung. Everyone enjoys the beautiful pink blossoms until the festival is over and the blossoms fall to the ground, making room for new green leaves.

This is such a beautiful book! The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous! I love the soft art style. Every page is so lovely that you could frame it and hang it on your wall.

The story is sweet and whimsical, noticing all these little details in people’s lives as they stop to admire the cherry blossoms. It’s really soothing and introspective.
