Here's my list and then it is your turn to share. What books do you tearfully read to your kids?
|Grandfather's Journey by Allen Say|
Pub. by Houghton Mifflin Co. 1993
Grandfather's Journey: Beautifully written and illustrated by Allen Say. A boy (Allen Say's own grandfather according to some sources) who grows up in Japan and moves to California as a young man. Throughout his life he finds he loves where he is but very much misses the places he has left behind. On a side note: this book, is a great book to give a graduate who loves children's books and obviously a great one for someone who is moving away.
