A Different Pond by Bao Phi

A Different Pond
| , |

A common happening: a father and son go fishing. But in A Different Pond this simple activity is so much more. As this duo prepares to fish before dawn, their journey to—and life in—America is revealed. Working more than one job to pay the rent while facing challenges of language and culture, the father shares his memory of another pond in a faraway country. This beautifully told story shares a bit of the struggle that many immigrants face: learning to navigate a new land while remembering the struggles that brought them to this place. Ages 6 and up.
