Only One Year

By Rutgers Project on Economics and Children

This new addition to the literature comes at a welcome time as working families all over the country face difficult choices about child care. With the high cost of daycare and concerns about leaving young children with other people, numerous families turn to extended family members as a source of care. Only One Year provides a glimpse of the challenges that a tight-knit family experiences when they feel that their best option lies across the ocean in China. Deep issues perhaps, but clear text and a child’s point of view help to make this book an ideal read for young learners.
