Goldfish and Chrysanthemums This picture book deals with a young Chinese-American girl's sensitivity towards her grandmother's sadness when reminded of her separation from her homeland and members of her family. Nancy decides to recreate the fish pond and chrysanthemum-filled garden that her grandmother grieves over, when a letter from her brother in China describes how her childhood home has been torn down. This is an affectionate portrait of a family dealing with some of the painful aspects of the immigrant experience.
