This poignant, vibrantly illustrated tale, which won the prestigious Feng Zikai Chinese Children’s Picture Book Award in 2009, is sure to resonate with every child who misses relatives when they are away — and shows how a family’s love is strong enough to endure over time and distance.. ISBN: A young girl, Maomao, is excited for the Chinese New Year because for those few days her Papa returns home from working far away. Maomao experiences a whirlwind of emotions. She is a little bit frightened because her Papa looks like a stranger at first. She is content sleeping between her parents at night while the firecrackers can be heard from outside. She is excited to find the fortune coin! And she is upset after a day out in the snow. Throughout all those different events and emotions, Maomao can be seen bonding with her Papa and it is evident that those moments are sacred and special. This is a very beautiful story that shows the warm bond between father and daughter.
The author includes a note at the end that acknowledges this family has fiction but shares that millions of families in China rely on migrant workers. It is heartbreaking to think that so many children spend so little time with a migrant working parent but on the other hand it is very admirable. The illustrations are bright, soft, and capture the mood of the story very well. I also appreciate that the characters do not look stereotypical which is an important aspect of quality multicultural literature. .
