Touching story. I used to pick the wild sweet strawberries in the wetlands near my former childhood home that is north of here in Michigan. Wonderful example of how couples who experience stress and strain of arguments can successfully work this out even though difficult times and arguments. We should have more stories passed on like this in our current culture.
By the way. My hubby was so impressed at my love of these sweet little wild berries we actually found someone that sold the wild indigenous plants, and planted some.
Looking forward to the berries & passing on this sweet story of relationships and redemption! :)

This is a nice story for children who are studying the Cherokee people. As a long-time teacher of literature, I am always inclined to encourage children to link what they are reading with other literature in their experience.
"The First Strawberries" is a lovely story of the first two people created by the Supreme Being "Yowa" from the Cherokee heritage. Not only is it a very fitting story of how these two come to cherish one another, but it is also very nice for comparison with the Biblical account of the first two people created by God. A child as young as second grade can easily make the connection. This little story embodies what makes for good children's literature: a well written story with a moral, but without a didactic approach. It allows the child to discern for himself with what he brings to the experience.
Wat!? Wat!?
This is a good story about how two people who love each other can argue but later reconcile. The man acts bossy and sexist to the woman but then he is sorry and has to go a long way to apologize to her. The paintings in the book are gorgeous and they show the loving relationship of the two people as well as their hurt feelings.

Anger, forgiveness and sweet strawberries - what do they have in common? They are all elements of the wonderful Cherokee story retold by Joseph Bruchac. I love his books! This story of friendship and respect is not lost on the young nor the old who read or hear it. Anna Vojtech's illustrations are beautiful and dreamy and fit beautifully with the words. I think it is a great springboard for explaining to children the concepts of quarreling and reconciliation in relationships.

Absolutely love this book! Our family is part Cherokee and we all LOVE strawberries! When I read it the first time, it quickly became our granddaughter's favorite book!

Great children's book. Gentle plot and nice pictures. I used it to share with my children a story of the native Cherokee people that does not involve harder, bigger issues that my young children are not ready for.

Such a sweet book my 7 year old and teen loved it
I ordered this book sight-unseen as gifts for children in my life because other books by the author were chosen for our community reading program. The story moved me to tears. It is beautiful in the simplicity in which it touches on the expectations we place on human relationships and the beauty of reconcilliation. The illustrations are wonderful, too. I plan to give this as a gift going forward to anyone I know getting married!
