Hello, everyone!

Yesterday was Father’s Day so I wanted to choose a winner this week that honored fathers. Or, in this case, the author’s grandfather. It’s called Grandfather’s journey by Allen Say. This book won the Caldecott Medal in 1994. Allen Say’s grandfather, the story’s main character, was born in Japan, but he traveled to and decided to live in California. There is more to the story, but I do not want to give away any surprises!

I have never traveled to another country, but I think it would be fun! Have you traveled to another country? Or have you lived in another country? What was it like? Maybe someday you will write a book about your journey!

Happy reading!

Your friend,
