My Grandfather’s Song

Written and Illustrated by Phung Nguyen Quang & Huynh Kim Liên

It made me feel amazing because it’s calming. It reminded me of my great grandpa that died. I thought it was kind of boring. This book was soothing. I connected with the book, it made me feel like I was there. I think this book is happy. I feel like it’s in the jungle. This book is really calming. When you first read the title, it makes you feel like the grandfather is singing the song, but it’s actually the Earth’s song.”

“I would recommend it, not sure why though. I would recommend this book because some kids have anxiety. I would recommend it because it’s short. I would recommend this book because it can help calm you when you’re stressed. I would recommend this book because it can help you realize how beautiful the world is and how tigers aren’t just mean and fierce, but can also be calming and part of the world.”

People that love nature would like this book. People that like calming books would like this. If people like animals they would like this book. Capricorns would like this book.

“This book reminded me of Hawaii; the fruit stands. It looks really tropical, kind of like Moana. It reminds me of being scared of the ocean. Reminded me of a game called The Kingdoms, where there is a villager fortress with water. It reminds me of the Roblox game “Boat to a Better Life.” It reminded me of Demon Slayer because characters died in that too. I reminded me of a Mortal Combat back story.”
