The Wakame Gatherers by Holly Thompson, illustrated by Kazumi Wilds [in Bloomsbury Review]

Wakame GatherersYoung Nanami shares an afternoon with her two grandmothers: her Baachan who lives with her family in Japan, and her Gram, who is visiting from the coast of Maine. Together the three share an ancient tradition of gathering seaweed and learn much about each other in the process. A poignant tale about how no matter where we’re from, we’re really not so different after all.
