Summary "Though Delores doesn't remember her father who has lived in San Francisco for five years, she is excited when the day comes that she and her mother leave their little village in the Philippines to join her father in America. Everything is so different and the children laugh at her because she doesn't speak English. She wishes she could return to her old home until the cultural and language gap is bridged by an extraordinary moment in the natural world. This story is based on the life of Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo's mother"--Provided by publisher
