From the Publisher:
When Ming Da's Chinese grandpa comes to visit, he overcomes his initial embarrassment at his grandfather's traditions and begins to appreciate him.
Annotation:
A little boy learns to appreciate his Chinese heritage in this appealing picture book. When Vinson's grandpa comes for a visit from China, he's excited. But Grandpa only calls him by his Chinese name, Ming Da, and it turns out that what he's practicing in the backyard is mellow tai chi instead of cool kung fu. However, soon Vinson discovers the value and wonder of his grandpa's seemingly old-fashioned ways when they participate in the Chinese New Year parade. With detailed illustrations.
