Product description

Review

"Gardening tips abound in this delightful guide to caring for a lemon tree. The unnamed protagonist has a carefully drawn-out list of acceptable electronics she wants for her birthday. But Grandma instead brings...gasp...a lemon tree. The second-person text covers appropriate and inappropriate reactions and then advises readers to accept the potted present politely and wait for Grandma to leave or take a nap. Then you definitely shouldn't: drop it from a bridge, send it aloft with balloons, or 'play ding dong ditch' with it (all illustrated with wry understatement). Instead, the narrator offers some incredibly important do's: put the fruit tree 'in a sunny spot' (the grassy verge between sidewalk and street), don't overwater it, and 'battle against intruders' who seem to come from all directions. After nearly a year of caring for her reluctantly received sapling, the protagonist joyously picks her lush lemons, and Grandma even returns to help make some fresh lemonade, the sale of which leads to more plants for her burgeoning garden. Rocha's colors and characters leap right off the page, encouraging readers to get out into the world and create life, beauty, and some great-tasting lemonade (recipe included). The community is diverse and urban, with no lack of personality and detail. The protagonist and Grandma are both black, she with black pigtail puffs and Grandma with a white poof of hair. Charms from cover to cover." --Kirkus (Starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Reviewed in the United States on 18 March 2019
I loved this book! With a light but beautifully effective and child-friendly touch, Deenihan conveys multiple messages. Don't be rude to Grandma when she gives you a birthday gift that is not on your carefully curated wish list. Take care of living things, in this case Lola the lemon tree. Have fun with what you've got- lemons! Put down the electronics. Share. You can make a difference.
The main character, a little girl, has no name, so the emphasis is on her actions. The second person voice is engaging, speaking directly to the reader, involving you in the action. Grandma gets the story rolling and helps with the lemonade but the little girl is very much self-directed.
The illustrations pair perfectly with the story and add extra layers. You see diversity and inclusivity in the neighborhood and you see the children putting down the robot dog, cell phone, drone, etc. and choosing to engage with one another in the beautiful garden. In case you didn't know, Deenahan and Rocha have another book on the way: When Grandpa Gives You a Toolbox. Check the end papers at the back of ...Lemon Tree for a glimpse of Grandpa's truck pulled up at the curb.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many reasons to love this book
Reviewed in the United States on 6 March 2019
I've excitedly anticipated this book's arrival on my doorstep and I am so in love with it. The bright and colorful cover is so inviting and is followed by art on every page that adds to the humor and heart of a fun story. My kids and I have loved studying the endpapers and interior art and talking about the details that add to the story. The high-quality design and production includes great printing on quality paper and satisfying spot gloss on the jacket. A real book-shelf treasure!

Through the story and author's note, this book can be a great springboard for talking about the lemons in our life, and how, through hard work and the support of a loving community, we can turn them into...lemonade. This is one I won't mind reading to my children and students again and again.
