7. The Peace Tree from Hiroshima: A Little Bonsai with a Big Story

Read Review
**Winner of the 2015 Gelette Burgess Award for Best Intercultural Book**
**Winner of the 2015 Silver Evergreen Medal for World Peace**

This true children’s story is told by a little bonsai tree, called Miyajima, that lived with the same family in the Japanese city of Hiroshima for more than 300 years before being donated to the National Arboretum in Washington DC in 1976 as a gesture of friendship between America and Japan to celebrate the American Bicentennial.

From the Book:
“In 1625, when Japan was a land of samurai and castles, I was a tiny pine seedling. A man called Itaro Yamaki picked me from the forest where I grew and took me home with him. For more than three hundred years, generations of the Yamaki family trimmed and pruned me into a beautiful bonsai tree. In 1945, our household survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. In 1976, I was donated to the National Arboretum in Washington D.C., where I still live today—the oldest and perhaps the wisest tree in the bonsai museum.”

It was a special occasion.
My grandmother was visiting during my summer vacation.

As she sat in a chair drinking her tea
It suddenly occurred to me…

“I’ll bet things were not the same when you were young.
How were they different?” I asked. I thought this would be fun.

“Well,” she said, as she took her nose out of her book.
“We prepared food in a different way
when my mother would cook.

Let’s go in the kitchen and I’ll see what I remember.”
I thought of all the kitchen gadgets we had, as I followed her in there.

From one generation to the next, everything, he found, was different – everything except one. What could that be? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

When the desires of a dog and a frog coincide, they decide to trade places. Fortunately for them, the dog’s owner, Gerald McGilligog, never wears his glasses. The family of McGilligogs is also remiss about wearing their glasses, which in turn affects their eyesight and ability to distinguish between the frog and dog. Thus the frog, posing as a dog, finds a new home. All the characters, including the green one, find happiness in this new arrangement.

The whimsical art of Sally Huss bounces along with rhyming, tongue-twisting words as the story unfolds.

Children who love the rhyming, nonsensical books of Dr. Seuss will love this book. And those who are fans of the books by Mo Willems, the Berenstains, Sandra Boynton, Felicia Bond, Laura Numeroff, and P.D. Eastman will also love GERALD MCGILLIGOG’S DOG. Age range: 2-8.

Excerpt:
“Once among the family of McGilligogs, a-gogs, with moms and dads and lads and lasses,
None of them wearing glasses,
The frog was given a juicy bone.
He smiled and said, ‘I’ve found my home.
This is the life for me.
I’m no longer in a bog a bog
Sitting on a log, a log.’
He decided he’d be a dog, a dog
And was as happy as could be.”
