Reviews

A solid primer on the Dragon Boat Festival, and a warm depiction of intergenerational relationships.

— Publishers Weekly

Family love, and especially the bond between grandparents and grandchildren, is on sweet display here, and storytimes could be built around a discussion of what children love to do with their grandparents.
