9780152007843: The Trip Back Home

These are the gifts brought across the ocean to Korea: Leather gloves. An apron with pockets like flowers. A book with pictures and simple words. What is given in return? Simple gifts like these--and so much more.
Janet S. Wong invites us to join her on the trip back home, revealing that even when family members speak different languages, there is still much they can share.

About the Author:

Janet S. Wong was born in Los Angeles to a Korean mother and a Chinese father. An award-winning author of picture books and poetry for young readers, she lives in Hopewell, New Jersey.

Bo Jia studied painting in China, where he was born and raised. He emigrated to the United States in 1989 and now lives in Washington, D.C., where he works as a designer, painter, and illustrator.

From Booklist:

Ages 3-7. Recalling her childhood trip to rural Korea with her mother to visit her grandparents and aunt, Wong measures her words to reflect the simple pleasures of the reunion. The pages reveal the farmers' way of life: Grandfather makes the charcoal that heats the house through tunnels under the floor; Grandmother markets in outdoor stalls and cooks in a stove lit with pine branches. The foods and their preparation, including persimmons stored on the roof, are described, as are the leisure- time activities--telling stories, playing cards, reading. There's no hustling to tourist attractions, just time together, paced to the daily rhythms of the family from whom the author has been separated. The gifts given on leave-taking are all the more meaningful for the memories they trigger of the cherished visit--a charcoal drawing of the neighboring hills, a necklace of dried persimmons, and an original poem written in Korean. This tender story of family love is expressively pictured in bright watercolors: jewel-tone clothing, colorful vegetables, and homey objects sparkle against the grays of the hills and the browns of the fields and the house. Bridging cultural and generational gaps, this beautiful, lyrically written picture book has much to say to children, no matter their nationality. Ellen Mandel
