In The Cherry On Top by Lauren Eresman, we are introduced to two cherries named Molly and Polly. Their stems are conjoined together, but they couldn’t be more different. While Molly is a more outgoing cherry that loves to be the center of attention, her sister Polly is quiet and does things in a more reserved manner. Despite how different they are, the cherries have one thing in common. Both want to be the cherry on top which is a big deal to them. Those who are chosen to be this cherry have the honor of sitting on top of a huge sundae and are the star and main attraction of the day. The girls were tired of being attached to one another so they split and became separated. Once separated though, the girls soon realized that it wasn’t as much fun as they thought it would be. At the top of that sundae, they found themselves missing the other one. After this realization, they decided to tie themselves back together.

The Cherry On Top: A Story about Embracing Differences is a very adorable and fun read that has a lesson to learn from it. Sometimes your siblings and you are as different as night and day, but in the end, you are family. You don’t really get how much you miss them until they aren’t around and you are without them. The main characters, Molly and Polly, are easily liked and relatable, because who doesn’t get annoyed with their siblings at some point and want to get away from them? The illustrations are beautifully done and fit perfectly with the storyline. Overall, I think Lauren Eresman has done a wonderful job and I cannot wait to read more of her work.
