This might be my favorite book of the year. The story is simple on the surface: a boy and his father go fishing. But it's more than that, too. It's about parents working hard and making sacrifices for their children. It's about holding onto memories. It's about growing up. Love it.

A noteworthy book, both in text and illustration, in which we see a small piece of the Vietnamese American immigrant experience from one boy's perspective. Ages 5-8
