This tender story of an intergenerational family bond offers children a simple way to discover rudimentary concepts on whole and partial numbers
Yumi’s blessing pouch bulges with lucky money and treats from the Lunar New Year. The silk pouch is so pretty, and it makes her feel lucky. Long ago the shiny red fabric had been Grandma’s wedding dress! Yumi loves the pouch because her grandmother made it especially for her, sewing every tiny stitch by hand—and because it reminds her of the love, joy, family, and memories they share. Hands-on activities and elementary math concepts expand this warm-spirited celebration of family and intergenerational love.
