    How perfect this one is I totally loved it especially the realistic and colourful illustrations This is a story of a Japanese origin girl named Masaki who had to shift back to Japan after growing up in San Francisco.The story talks about her trying herself to adapt to the ways of life in Japan as per the instructions of her strict mother.But life ends beautifully for her unexpectedly I really wonder how such a short story can be written and illustrated so perfectly

    The book is a realistic fiction written and illustrated by Allen Say It s beautiful illustrations depict the story accurately and do a wonderful job of capturing Japanese culture It is about a Japanese girl living in America who although she is familiar with aspects of her culture, she has really adapted to the American culture as well and has made friends in America However her parents move back to Japan, and she had to go back to Japan with them While there she misses her American friends The book is a realistic fiction written and illustrated by Allen Say It s beautiful illustrations depict the story accurately and do a wonderful job of capturing Japanese culture It is about a Japanese girl living in America who although she is familiar with aspects of her culture, she has really adapted to the American culture as well and has made friends in America However her parents move back to Japan, and she had to go back to Japan with them While there she misses her American friends and her life in America, and originally feels out of place in Japan However, as time goes on she begins to find her own way in Osaka Most of the time books focus on the feelings of people who come to America from another country, and adapt to American ways, so I found it interesting to see a book talking about a person going to another country and adapting to their new environment there I believe the book promotes appreciation of culture, because by going back to the country where her culture originates from, she grew to appreciate her cultureand accept both her American and Japanese culture The book also does a great way of displaying Japanese culture I feel kids such as 3rd grade and up would appreciate the bookthan the younger kids since it has larger harder to grasp concepts in it If read in 2nd grade or younger it would require further breaking down and explaining

    Allen Say retells his mother s childhood and young adulthood, from being an Japanese immigrant in San Fransisco, to moving back to Japan and being treated like an American immigrant This story allows young readers to begin to understand cultural differences, especially some of the struggles females faced in the mid 1900s outside of the United States I would recommend this book as a mentor text to 4th through 7th grade teachers.


  10. Jane Jane says:

    Allen Say s illustrations have a unique atmosphere, a zen quiet filled with light and shadow His books are breathtakingly beautiful, and Tea With Milk is no exception The story relates another episode in his family saga of cultural displacement, when his mother and grandparents move back to Japan from the US Masako finds her way home, learning that it isn t a place or a building that s ready made and waiting for you you have to make it for yourself.
