for Hoang Anh by Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith and Lawrence Migdale
A photo-essay uses color photographs and a short first-person text to describe the day-to-day life of a young Vietnamese-American boy living in San Rafael, California. Hoang Anh briefly recounts the circumstances of his family's escape from Vietnam in 1978, their life in a refugee camp, and details of his family's bicultural life style in the United States. Roughly one-half of the book is devoted to Hoang Anh's observances of the New Year (TET), making this a useful source for information about the Vietnamese holiday. (Ages 8-12)
