Goldfish and Chrysanthemums

By Kirkus Reviews

After a trip to the summer fair to search for ideas, Nancy decides to build a miniature goldfish pond in the backyard, complete with the yellow flowers Ni Ni remembers from her father’s garden. With help from a neighbor and brother Greg, Nancy completes her surprise. They take pictures to send to China, and Ni Ni finds a special way to say thank you. Cheng’s story of intergenerational connection is a sweet one… a good choice for older storytime audiences or collections in need of culturally different stories.
