Description


Featured on the 2017 Children's Best Books Lists including Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, Washington Post, Kirkus, New York Public Library, and more Acclaimed poet Bao Phi delivers a powerful, honest glimpse into a relationship between father and son?and between cultures, old and new. A Different Pond is an unforgettable story about a simple event?a long-ago fishing trip. As a young boy, Bao Phi awoke early, hours before his father's long workday began, to fish on the shores of a small pond in Minneapolis. Unlike many other anglers, Bao and his father fished for food, not recreation. A successful catch meant a fed family. Between hope-filled casts, Bao's father told him about a different pond in their homeland of Vietnam. The New York Times has said that Bao Phi's poetry "rhymes with the truth." Kirkus Reviews calls A Different Pond "a must-read for our times." Thi Bui's striking, evocative art paired with Phi's expertly crafted prose has earned this powerful picture books six starred reviews.
