We are grandparents once again. Last week, our son and daughter-in-law became the parents of a little baby girl. We have not seen the newborn yet, but hope to make a trip to visit the family as soon as we can.
I just finished reading a phenomenal novel that I can’t wait to share with everyone. It’s called Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai. Somewhat autobiographical, it tells the story of ten-year-old Kim Ha’s escape with her family from Saigon (one step ahead of the invading North) to the United States. The young protagonist narrates the tale in free verse, and it’s a blockbuster. A more detailed review can be found at my site: http://bookandagarden.com. Check it out and share this gem with a young reader in your life!
