Synopsis

Jennifer's grandmother, Halmoni, is visiting all the way from Korea--and she's arrived just in time for Grandparents' Day at school. Halmoni doesn't speak English, and Jennifer isn't sure what the day will be like...for herself or Halmoni. But as this moving story shows, there are many ways to express love--ways that bridge differences in generations and cultures.

A perfect accompaniment to Grandparents' Day celebrations, Halmoni's Day features endearing characters that spring to life in exquisite illustrations from oil painter Robert Hunt.
