Matthew, Mark, Luke and John Reviews
My children didn't like this as much as I did. The book deals with "Them" - the half American, half Korean children who were rejected from Korean society.One boy is adopted by an American family who then advocates for the boys he had to leave behind.Read to my children at lunch.
This book should be read by every (spoiled) American child waiting for Santa to bring a plethora of gifts on Christmas (or Hanukkah /Kwanza or any other winter holiday featuring gifts!). I read this book with my 6th graders millions of years age--my favorite students were very impacted by it. It's relevant today when thinking of Iraq and Afghanistan etc. rather than Korea. Our kids (and many adults) don't realize how our worst days would be the best for many in our world!Nice to read it again (and cry....)
I liked this book so much, that I convinced my third grade teacher to read it to the whole class. I don't think she wanted too, but did anyway. I remember at the end that she got choked up and teary. I love this story. I enjoyed revisiting it.
Great children's story by PSB to raise awareness for the plight of Amerasian children.
Like all Pearl S. Buck's stories, it's still a great story. Spoiler alert....you may cry. If you're not moved to think of similar children today, you may have lost your human empathy.
