Terry Hong is an author, editor, reviewer, critic, teacher, speaker and consultant, and she writes a blog for the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program. She cleverly calls her blog, "BookDragon"and she reviews books which have a multi-cultural component. I'm tickled that she likes Reaching for that reason. Here's part of her review :
"Author Judy Ann Sadler creates a gentle lullaby while illustrator Susan Mitchell adds a colorful touch … not just in her choice of color palette but with clearly multicultural grandparents (Oma and Opa in addition to Grandma and Grandpa) and multi-ethnic cousins and Auntie, too. In today’s world of shifting borders, Reaching is a timely reflection of the global village in so many of our own families!"
Isn't that nice?
All the best,
