Why this book is so important to me
Reviewed in Canada on March 1, 2021
What an endearing book! As a canadian born chinese, I realized how important the conversation is about the a language that is slowly going away. My mother tongue is Cantonese as it was what I was first taught at home. English, came later when I went to school. Growing up, the majority of my cousins did not speak, or spoke very little Cantonese, which made it hard for them to communicate with our elders. This book highlights this, but even with a language barrier, all you need is a little perserverance. I wanted to buy one for every one of my nieces and nephews growing up not quite understanding what their grandparents are saying.
