This is the story of Yoko the cat who began life in Japan where she loved to feed the cranes at the pond with her grandmother. She then moves to America with her family, but leaves her grandparents behind. In order to surprise her grandmother on her birthday, Yoko makes paper cranes and sends them to her grandma as a gift.

This is a heart-warming story of the life of an immigrant that many children can relate to. Kids will love not only the story, but also the rich and warm illustrations.
