This was a great book for my 8 year old daughter. She loved how strong Nim was and how she was going to find a solution no matter what it took. In the end the girls's grandfather teaches her a lesson that many should learn or be reminded of. The book is set during the early 1940's and being Asian wasn't very easy...this Chinese american family wanted to do their part for the war effort, and they did.

Good book
