A picture book that teaches that there is more than one way to get something done!
When Juno's parents are too busy to read him a letter from his grandmother in Korea, Juno decides he can't wait for them to help, and opens the letter himself. No, he cannot read the Korean words, but there's more in the envelope than just the letter. Grandmother has sent along a few things--a dried flower and a photograph of herself with her cat. These little things tell Juno a lot: Grandmother has a new cat and she's planting a flower garden. Now Juno wants to write back--without help from mom and dad--but Grandmother can't read English. Juno knows just want to do.
With its warm and elegant illustrations, Dear Juno is a picture book that crosses cultures and generations while encouraging children to find their own solutions.
