Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-When May is left to stay with her Gong Gong for the day, she is not quite sure what to expect, mostly because Gong Gong doesn't speak much English and May doesn't speak Cantonese. Once the old gentleman wakes up from his nap, it's off to Chinatown. Grandpa happily waves to all his friends in the neighborhood while May is left to wonder what they are saying. They greet street vendors, stop at a gift shop, and eventually end up at a park where they play cards with Gong Gong's friends. But May has had enough! She is hungry and frustrated. Gong Gong comforts her with a toy and a pork bun; they forge a connection despite the language barrier. The lighting in the watercolor illustrations accompany the changing mood of the day; as May and Gong Gong return home, shopkeepers are closing, and the colors turn dusky. They perfectly capture the mood of the characters and the intentions of the story. VERDICT Featuring a winsome pair, this is a wonderful, sympathetic story, and the bonus is a small glossary of Cantonese words.

“Yee captures intergenerational love and understanding.” 

Butler Children’s Literature Center, 06/05/20

“An excellent conversation starter and teaching tool for young children growing up in multi-generational families. Highly Recommended.”

CM Reviews, 06/12/20

“Through adorable illustrations effused with humor and warmth, this portrait of intergenerational affection is also a tribute to life in Chinatown neighborhoods . . . A multilayered, endearing treasure of a day.” 

Kirkus Reviews, *starred review, 06/06/20

“A gentle, resonant portrayal of the way love can overcome language barriers.”

Publishers Weekly, *starred review, 08/19/20

“Timely and touching.” 

Hidden World Books, 09/08/20

“This is a love story between generations.” 

Sal’s Fiction Addiction, 09/09/20

“The empathetic situation, escalating story/tension, and appealing illustrations combine to capture universal emotions and situations.” 

Unpacking the Power of Picture Books, 09/24/20

“Chen’s watercolor and colored pencil illustrations beam with benevolence from the get-go.”

The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, 11/20

“Yee writes the story in simple, accessible language that’s nonetheless musical and fun to say out loud, allowing readers and listeners a chance to explore the sounds and shapes of different words, and the way they fit together like notes in a song.” 

Quill & Quire, 10/15/20

“Featuring a winsome pair, this is a wonderful, sympathetic story, and the bonus is a small glossary of Cantonese words.” 

School Library Journal, 08/20
