An Asian American child must reconcile her American values with her Grandfather's Asian ones when he decides it is time to return Home or, as the Chinese say, return to his roots. A warm and touching story, this tale will reassure any child faced with the imminent departure of a grandparent or other loved one that separation will not undermine the infinite nature of love. 32 pages, hardbound with paper jacket; full color illustrations.

This is a special book that touches upon inevitabilities in life and respect for values that may conflict with our own wishes. Although we may not always be able to be with our loved ones, absence does not abolish love.Review:
"This rare children's story explores a common Asian American (as opposed to Asian) experience, the generational confusion between Asian immigrants and their American-born children and grandchildren over the concept of Home. The story is also designed to reassure all children who are faced with the imminent departure of a loved one by reaffirming the eternal nature of love. This wonderful story, appropriate for early elementary school students, is accompanied by beautiful illustrations by Japanese artist Mika Takahashi." -- Multicultural Resources, Spring, 1989
