While nothing special, this is still a nice little short story with a nice message. In the terrible hardship immediately following the second world war, a young boy and his mother are struggling just to survive. The boy comes across an old man caring for a cherry tree -- and through his actions, he is able to show how strength and perseverance through hardship pays off.

The artwork is serviceable but unexceptional. The story is also simple and straightforward, although maybe a bit maudlin. But even still, it's a nice and short tale.
