Grandpa Across the Ocean

We rated this book:


A little boy visits his grandpa in Korea for the summer. At first, the little boy doesn’t understand his grandpa, not his bows, or his language, or his food. When the little boy accidentally breaks his grandpa’s vase, he feels really bad. Instead of yelling at his grandson, the grandpa comforts him. Will the two be able to understand each other and have a fun summer together?

I think this is a very sweet and cute story about a grandson and his grandfather. The grandson and grandfather have to find a way to understand each other and to spend time together. It is very sweet how the grandfather is so caring and loving towards his grandson. I like seeing how they go about their day going shopping, eating ice cream, and playing at the beach together. The illustrations are very comforting and joyful. I recommend this picture book to kids who miss their grandparents or to grandparents who miss their grandkids. I hope you are able to see each other soon!
