Grandfather’s Journey 20th Anniversary

We rated this book:


Grandfather’s Journey is a sad and happy story. It’s happy because it is about the journey a young boy takes to America and it’s sad for a couple of reasons. It’s sad because the grandfather wants to be in California and in his home land of Japan at the same time. He loves both places and when he’s in one place, he misses the other. It’s like he can never really be happy. Also, it’s a sad book because the grandfather dies and never gets to see California one last time like he wanted to.

I liked that the grandson travels to California when he grows up and that makes it seem like he did it instead of his grandfather since he didn’t get to go again. My favorite part of the book was when the boy gets to know his grandfather by doing the things he did and falling in love with the places he did.
