Delightful story of a little girl gathering information along the way of the country she was born to, but no longer living in. An adult reading this will know the child has been adopted, but that is not the focus of the story. It's a way to teach children that lots of things we have here in America have come from other countries and belong to other cultures. We should respect everyone and make it a goal to learn something new every day. I learned from this book that the Chinese like long noodles because it represents a long life. Five stars for this wonderful look at a culture I don't know much about and how an adoptive parent made these facts known to the little girl in a casual way without discussing adoptions per se. I might have to add this book to my personal collection. Teaches the soul and makes you feel good at the end.
