I’m a bit biased about how wonderful Auntie Yang’s Great Soybean Picnic and Mahjong All Day Long are. Full disclosure: I’m from Illinois and I’ve lived in Indiana. And I’m moving to China in a month! (And I have 2 awesome sisters!) So, they’re the perfect books for me, but they might just be great for you too. They are such a sweet celebration of family traditions, so culturally specific and yet so universally heartwarming, that I can’t help but want to share them with everyone I know! So let’s travel from place to place, book by book.
