A fabulous book

Highly recommended. A mother and daughter visit the mother's birthplace in Vietnam, learning the story behind the kite which means so much to the daughter and the facts of the mother's earliest years. Touching and meaningful, this book is terrific for children and adults from age 7 and up. Used in our school for discussions around Vietnam, war, and multiculturalism.

Touching story of a search for roots

This is a good story about an important topic - a woman's search for her birthfamily. Two small things bothered me: First, the narrator calls the American (grand)father the woman's "Foster Father". A child adopted from Vietnam would not have been a foster child; therefore the correct term would be "Adoptive Father". Second, the main character prays to a goddess in Vietnam. This is probably realistic but for my children it is not something I want to encourage. Aside from those small flaws, I found this to be a touching and important book.

Lovely story, beautifully illustrated!

This is a great book for all the children whose lives are touched by adoption. The wonderful illustrations accurately capture the beauty of Vietnam. We are thoroughly enjoying this book!
