One of all time best children's books

Allen Say's bittersweet masterpiece tells the story of his grandfather, and his life split between the US and Japan. Being a children's book, the prose is spare, almost poetry. B.D. Wong is the perfect narrator. Listen at least once with the picture book in front of you. It should be available at most libraries.
