Flowers from Mariko

Amazon.com Rating:

Mariko's family has been freed from a Japanese-American internment camp, but the transition hasn't been easy. Because her father's truck has disappeared, he can't start up his gardening business, and the family must move to a trailer park. One day, Mariko's father gives her two seed envelopes. She plants the seeds and even serenades them.

Mariko's father is so preoccupied he doesn't notice her garden -- until he hears her singing. At last he smiles. Flowers from Mariko tells of a family striving to re-establish their lives -- through hope, perseverance, and love.

Description

"The authors create strong imagery with apt metaphors (Mariko hears her worried parents whispering at night, 'their words circling the dark rooms like birds without a safe place to land')....Kumata's suitably spare, mixed media pictures feature an intriguing array of fabrics and textures." -- Publishers Weekly
