This powerful picture book’s depiction of a multiethnic family, perhaps a symbol of America itself, includes those indigenous to this country, those who came here voluntarily, and those who were brought against their will, as in the pages which read Grandfather’s people, had crossed the great sea, Their bodies were chained, but their souls fought free. Hamanaka’s folk-art-inspired illustrations are framed-by materials including old wood, twigs, bas-relief, and beadwork-in ways that visually contribute to the impact of the words.

Sheila Hamanaka has written yet another beautiful book for children. 'Grandparents Song' sensitively explores the connection of children to their grandparents and at the same time celebrates the richness of the multicultural experience, as people emigrate to the United States from many parts of the world and bring their diverse families together. The story is told from the point of view of a young girl who find strength and beauty in each part of her heritage. The language is simple yet musical and compelling, while the art is simply stunning. Parents and grandparents will love reading this book to children and the children in turn will love reading it to themselves. It is always a pleasure to find a book for young people which does not assume homogenous experiences.

Lovely!

This should be read to every child. It is a nice book with beautiful pictures and a wonderful story that should be read together.

This is a simple, delightful book for girls (and boys) from K to 3rd grade. The artwork is wonderful, colorful, with an American Indian and somewhat African motiff. The story teaches a wonderful lesson about roots, the protraganists ancestors, grandparents, where they were from and a bit about their story, the mixed heritage of a little girl. It might make children think about their own roots, where their grandparents were from, and their stories. Grandparents might obtain this book to read to their grandchildren, and use it as a basis to explain to their grandchildren the grandchild's ancestral heritage. The story incorporates cultures of Mexico, U.S., African American and American Indian. It was written by a Japense author. Nice classroom book, and nice gift for girls especially, ages 5 to 7.

Grandparents Song is one of those rare books that leaves you feeling changed, inspired. Mystical, lyrical, beautiful, both text and illustrations convey a sense of legacy and reverence. I'll be looking for all of Ms. Hamanaka's books. If you like this, you'll also like Takayo Noda's "Dear World."
