    As someone who has taken watercolour classes, I appreciate Allen Say s talent, and give full marks 5 stars for the paintings in Grandfather s Journey The 1994 Caldecott Medal given to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children was well deserved That he used pen and ink in his artwork for Under the Cherry Blossom Tree and other earlier works, is a good indication that Say is a wonderful, versatile artist In Grandfather s Journey, Allen Say retells his grandfather s st [...]

    Allen Say s Caldecott Medal winning Grandfather s Journey as a story, as an account, reads sweetly and generally quite pleasantly, but also with much thought provoking potential emotionality, and even a palpable bit of potential sadness especially to and for those of us who are immigrants or emigrants ourselves and have personally experienced what the text shows and oh so very clearly presents, namely equal amounts of love and passion for both our countries of origin and the countries to which w [...]

    A poignant story that will probably be better appreciated by adults than children, this is the touching and bittersweet story of Say s grandfather, a loving tribute to the man who had a wanderlust and who loved both his hometown in Japan and his new home in California and who was never completely satisfied in either place because part of him longed to be in the other A beautiful story that children and adults of two worlds will probably respond to, it is also a testament to how young children lo [...]

    I do wonder whether I d have rated this book 5 stars if I hadn t just read the remarkable book Drawing from Memory.The illustrations are gorgeous and evocative of their places They re definitely 5 star worthy.The story, of emigration and immigration, about the author s grandfather and about the author, and their relatives, is spare and lovely and rings so true Its very few words make it suitable for the youngest children, and for all ages Not a word is wasted It s lovingly told.I really can t fa [...]

    This is a wonderful story about the life of a man from Japan Early on, he travels extensively throughout the US and then returns home to raise his family The pictures are amazing, as you would expect for a Caldecott Medal winner, and they tell a beautiful story of the man s life, as he grows up, starts a family and passes on his story to a younger generation The narrative is simple, often one or two sentences per page, but it is enough to weave a beautiful tale, a heartfelt memoir of the author [...]

    This is only the second book by Say that I ve read, but I will be watching for others After the kids have read some of his stories about children and Japan, I think they ll appreciate this story than if we were to read it first.As an immigrant, Say writes, The funny thing is, the moment I am in one country, I am homesick for the other.I imagine that will ring true for many immigrants I know it was true for my grandparents.This book is fiction I d like to know how much of it is autobiographical.

    A touching story about a grandfather, his descendants, and his love for traveling I particularly enjoyed the photograph like illustrations and connections to California Japan across generations.I feel that anyone could enjoy this book but older children or adults may find this book meaningful because of the complexity of the grandfather s journey and the generational bonds.

    I don t think I am especially weepy right now, but this book brought me to tears Maybe it is because my mother is an immigrant I felt like it connected me to her I know she has similar feelings for her country of adulthood and her country of birth childhood The pictures were simple and stunning Lovely read.

    The longing for other places and other people is a part of modern life Unless you spend your whole life in one place, you will experience it If attachment is at the root of human suffering, then understanding that suffering is perhaps a good way to understand your elders Grandfather s Journey is a kid s book that may have to offer older readers.

    Grandfather s Journey written and illustrated by Allen Say is a beautifully written tale about a young Japanese Boy growing up in both California as well as Japan But this story is not told by the young Japanese boy, but his future grandson The Caldecott winner shows the story as a sort of biography Each picture was linear and the same as the last each frame was perfectly square, giving it a very photographed feel the author did this to convey the obvious care that his culture took into presenta [...]
