Grandfather’s Journey by Allen Say

Recommended Grades: 3-5

Using his grandfather’s story as a backdrop, Say bridges the gap between two cultures, Japanese and American.  He tells the story of his grandfather who learned to love both cultures and invariably miss one when he was living in the other country. 

Lesson Idea:  


Content Connections/Immigration/Multiple perspectives: Read aloud Grandfather’s Journey and discuss how the author and his grandfather’s perspective are both evident.  Use this as a model text to determine how one might feel when immigrating to a new country.
