Happy Birthday Mr. Kang
Author: Susan L. Roth
Illustrator: Susan L. Roth
During his 70th birthday celebration, Mr. Kang’s three wishes are: to paint, to read the New York Times daily, and to own a hua mei bird. The bird, which he eventually set free, symbolized Mr. Kang’s connection to his grandfather. A touching tale with underlying themes of freedom and choice, treasuring one’s heritage while acknowledging diversity in the environment in which new migrants live.
