Description
"This is the house where my grandparents arrived from far away with just two suitcases in hand." "This is the tree that bloomed in the spring when my mother was born." From captions like these, in a book for readers 4 to 7 that resembles a photo album, South Korea–born author and illustrator Hyewon Yum tells the story of a young girl whose immigrant family has lived in the same city house since her grandparents came to America. On each two-page spread, a framed "photo" appears on one page, with a snippet of family history, while on the other side is a full-page watercolor depicting another moment from the same day, revealing more of the story.

"Yum depicts the girl's grandparents as warm and welcoming, even as nervous new parents, and the girl's parents convey the same loving concern for their child. Some of the 'framed' images pop up again on walls in later pages, suggesting how the young narrator learned the history she's relaying. Even before the baby sibling is introduced on the last spread, this is a sweet tribute to continuity and togetherness."—Booklist
