In this book, she weaves a historical fiction illustrating the life of Chinese boys sent to the U.S. in the 1870s for an American education. This book targets readers in grades 4-7 and the subject matter will interest teachers of any grade level. Yang and Roberts will explore the fascinating history underlying the book’s themes and discuss ways to connect students’ lives and experiences with those of other people in other times and places.
