A Song for Ba
( by Paul Yee/ illus. by Jan Peng Wang, Groundwood $17.95 Score: ) Set in the early half of the 20th Century, this is a tender story about a Chinese-American boy being raised by his father and grandfather on the West Coast. Both men are Chinese Opera singers. Although the boy wants to follow their footsteps, his father fears that the audience for Chinese opera is shrinking and there is no future in singing for his son. Secretly, before the grandfather leaves for China, he teaches the boy to sing and in time these lessons are used to help his father regain his voice. Handsome paintings and a well-paced story make this a memorable book for 6ís & up.
