A tender, warm-hearted picture book brimming with the love, energy and anticipation of having a special day with someone you love.
Will there be many and will they be ripe? Mum whispers, “Just wait and see.”
As the sun starts to rise, a mother and daughter head out, hand in hand, on their annual outing together. A special tradition, just the two of them. They’re leaving the town behind and going to the wild fields, where their mulberry tree is waiting. There’s juice on their hands and stains on their shirts as they collect berries and share a picnic; then its home to savour crumbly, sticky slices of fresh mulberry pie…
Brought to life by Chuck Groenink’s soft and vivid illustrations, this is a deeply resonant story, warm with the joy of tradition and the sweetness of moments spent with people we love.
