My god! This book was soooo good. Actually phenomenol.(If that's how you spell it) I cried at some sad parts. But it's about the Vietnam war. I'm Vietnamese so I know about my coutry's tragedy. On the back it has a poem of a the Lotus Flower. In Vietnam or in Vietnamese school, they would make you remember that poem by heart. I had to do it too. But all I tryin to say is, GO AND READ IT!!!

'Lotus Seed' is a simple and straightforward picture book recommended especially for young children. Many aspects of the Vietnamese culture in both Vietnam and the U.S. were portrayed accurately and the illustrations were beautiful.
