Picture Book Review: Watercress


While driving in the car, a young girl's family spies Watercress. Immediately, they stop to pick some. The young girl is embarrassed and desperately hopes that no one she knows will see them picking this plant. Afterwards, she almost refuses to eat it. But a story from her parents change her mind.

A heart wrenching story about being embarrassed by your family but also coming to understand the past. The past starts to shape the present and before you know it, new memories are being made. I loved the gorgeous watercolor illustrations. 

Library Recommendation: A must have book for your school and public libraries.
