Different Pond (A)
Bao Phi, Capstone Young Readers 2017
An exquisite book about a father and son fishing early, early in the morning so there will be fish for dinner that night. It is also a story of an immigrant family, both parents working long hours, older siblings caring for the younger boy. And it is a story of a child feeling strong and capable and deeply loved. A loving Vietnamese family, a gentle caring boy, a working class family holding each other with care. This is a book that should become a classic.
