I loved this book for two reasons. This main idea of this story was on how it isn’t beauty that makes something to be good and true; in fact, it’s the love and care that go into making it that makes something good and truly beautiful. First, I loved the illustrations in the book. I loved how the illustrator used colors that relate to Korean culture and traditions. For example, the hanbok that the grandfather is wearing throughout the story is in faded traditional colors. Also, the traditional Korean kite that the protagonist was making with his grandfather had blue, red, yellow, and white which are colors that are related to Korean traditions. I also loved the different perspectives that the illustrator drew in. For instance in the scene where the grandson was watching the kite flying in the air with his grandfather, the illustrator drew that scene from the bottom-up perspective. Therefore when looking at the illustration, it felt like I was watching the kite fly with them. Secondly, I liked how the author and the illustrator decided to format the pages of the book. For example, there are some pages where it only has illustrations, and some that don’t have any illustrations at all. In addition, there are times when there are pages with just the illustrations in a row. I really liked how the author and the illustrator formatted this way because there are certain scenes from the story where pictures say more than words. For instance, there is a scene where the grandson takes his kite outside and watches the kite fly in the air with his friend. The illustration portrays an image of children watching in awe of how the kite is flying in the best wind. In this case, no words could amount to the emotions and feelings that the illustration is portraying. This definitely exemplifies how there are times when pictures say more than words, and I loved that the author did this.… (mer)

This story is a bout a little girl losing her grandmother. To cope with the loss, the girl says she will stay with the grandmother forever. When she realizes she would miss her family too much, the little girl decides to leave her grandmother above the clouds. I like the use of the ball of string to represent memories of the grandmothers life. Even when people die, they leave behind all the memories of what they have done. The tradition of the ball of sting was then passed down to her granddaughter who said she will pass it down when she is a grandmother. The work is of ancient japan. The collage like pictures use deep, rich colors. The language used helps deal with the loss of someone, but in a gentle way.… (mer)

Just like every other child, Makoa looked up to his grandfather. His grandfather was a torch fisherman and the main provider of their family. For Makoa's entire life, he believed his grandfather was like no other torch fisherman, he believed he would torch fish using the sun. Because his grandfather told him so, of course he believed him. When Makoa tells his friend Kimo about his grandfathers special gift, Kimo just laughs in his face. He tells Makoa to stop believing that, that his grandfather is just an old man who waits until it's dark to get his fish from the market. Upset, Makoa stops going to greet his grandfather. When he tells his grandfather what Kimo told him, he had a great response, "Sometimes you have to believe things you can not see." When the grandfather dies,it is Makao's turn to provide for the family. Everyday he went fishing, and everyday he returned with little to no fish for his family. As the day's went on, his family grew more hungry. Finally Makao had an idea, he was going to take a risk and torch fish using the sun. He tried, and it was a success! Makao caught more fish than he knew what to do with. I liked this book but it was kind of boring. I found myself loosing track while reading and having to start over a couple of times. Other than that, the book did have a good story line and plot, it just lacked personality and character.… (mer)
