A Different Pond by Bao Phi, illus. by Thi Bui

Long before dawn, a boy and his father wake and quietly, companionably, drive to a pond at the city limit to fish for supper. In melting blues, deep red, occasional gold, and crisp inked outlines, we see the small fire the boy starts with a single match, the shared sandwiches, and the father’s face as he speaks to his son of a different pond in Vietnam where he and his brother fished together. Returning home, the boy helps his mother clean the fish, and both parents leave for work. In the evening, with his older siblings laughing and delicious food on the table, the kitchen bulb tenderly illuminates our narrator and his family. Grades K–3. - Ga
