for The Tangerine Tree by Regina Hanson, Harvey Stevenson, and Jane Feder
From the Publisher
Jamaican-born Regina Hanson drew on her own childhood experiences for this simple, realistic story, brought to glowing life in Harvey Stevenson's tender, light-filled paintings. When Ida finds out that Papa must leave Jamaica to work in America, she's heartbroken. But there is some consolation in knowing that Papa needs her to care of the tangerine tree while he's away, and his parting gift of a book comes with a promise: he'll be home again by the time she's able to read it.
