Synopsis: A young girl pays tribute to the two most important women in her life--her Japanese mother and her African-American grandmother--in a heartwarming story about growing up in a family of mixed race.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make origami birds.
•  Draw your family. How are they different from other families? How are they different from each other?

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don't have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
