When he was a young man, Allen Say’s grandfather left his home in Japan to explore the world. He began his journey by crossing the Pacific Ocean on a steamship, then wandered the deserts, farmlands, and cities of North America. Allen Say lovingly tells the story of his own family’s cross-cultural history in elegant watercolor paintings that earned him a Caldecott Medal in 1994. This twentieth-anniversary edition of the modern classic features read-aloud audio and an introduction by Allen Say.

Grandfather 's Journey.0
Beautiful and meaningful for all of us that have love in our hearts for our families and our countries.
Simply done right
"The funny thing is, the moment I am in one country, I am homesick for the other." I read Grandfathers Journey as a college student and felt as though it was my own story. I am attending college far from home and before I came, I couldn't wait to leave. Now that I'm here I'm ready to go home. This book teaches children that your heart can love more than you think and home can be in two places. This story and illustrations are simple yet they tell the story of traveling and desperately missing home.
