Red Kite, Blue Kite
( by Ji-Ji Jiang/ illus. Greg Ruth, Hyperion $17.99 Score: )

A tender story of a boy and his father separated by the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Though most picture book age children are not likely to know the history of this time, it will be meaningful to those who have heard of the hardships endured from family members who lived it. Most of all, it speaks to the love that endures between parent and child in times of separation, one that children of today do know about with parents in the service or separated after divorce. Greg Ruth’s watercolor illustrations capture the unfamiliar landscape as well as the emotional tone of this moving book. If only all such stories had such joyful endings. 7 & up.
