    Raise Cultural Awareness - Ages 7-9

    This story begins in the summer and centers around a Chinese family that has three children, ages 2, 6 and 9. The mother will be starting a new job at a school when school starts, so the parents have made the decision to send the 2 year old to China for a year so that he can be cared for by relatives. The two older girls are not happy about this decision. However, they get through the year and the little brother returns the following summer.

    The black and white illustrations that accompany the text are very detailed and add to the feel of the story.

    This book explores the different adjustments that must be made by the family throughout the year and especially by the little brother when he returns to the US from China. The author also includes a note discussing the difficult decision that families make more often than we would expect. She also includes a pronunciation guide and definitions for the Chinese words used in the book.

    This would be a great recommendation to readers who enjoyed The Year of the Dog by Grace Lin. I would recommend purchase of this book as an early chapter book for grades two and three.
