One More Jar of Jam
A sparkling and deeply felt story of love, loss, renewal—and jam!—offering a gentle reminder of the cyclical nature of the world around us.
If you ever have a mulberry tree, you’ll climb branches and shake with all your might. You’ll gather berries and smush fruits, while your dad boils jars in a tall, silver pot sweating and happy as the kitchen fills with steam. Because if you’ve ever had a mulberry tree, you know that the sweetest things are worth waiting for.
Sumptuous text and deliciously expressive illustrations come together to form a gentle ode to nature’s bounty, to patience, and to one girl’s lifelong connection to the tree in her yard.
Be on the lookout for these gorgeously-illustrated picture books in 2024.
See you in the future!
