Über diesen Titel


"The sights, smells, and tastes of Vietnam's cities and villages come alive on the page, without overwhelming a story filled with a summers-worth of touching and hilarious moments, grand adventure, and lazy afternoons."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"As she did in her National Book Award-winning Inside Out & Back Again, Lai offers a memorable heroine and cultural journey--ones that are clever near-opposites of those in that book."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Lai inserts Ba's lyrical voice selectively into Mai's story. These heart-stopping passages further shift Mai's position from outsider to insider, to, finally, truly bicultural, just as 'Listen, Slowly' invites readers to see Vietnam from the inside out--and back again."--New York Times Book Review

"This valentine of a novel may jumpstart questions in young readers about the people and places of their families' past."--Washington Post

"Lai convincingly shows Mai's slow transformation from spoiled child to someone who can look beyond herself with compassion. Her strong-willed personality makes her an entertaining narrator; readers will happily travel anywhere with Mai."--The Horn Book

"Through prose so evocative we can feel the heat caressing Mai's skin as she lands, Lai transports the reader from suburban California to modern-day Vietnam."--Los Angeles Times

The village experience and Mia and her grandmother's travels in the city offer Lai a way to introduce readers to various aspects of Vietnamese culture with both wry wit and genuine enthusiasm.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"In this free-verse narrative, Lai is sparing in her details, painting big pictures with few words and evoking abundant visuals."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This book is at once funny, thoughtful, and stunningly engaging. I loved, loved, loved it! Can't wait for my own daughter--and every reader who is lucky enough to get their hands on it--to step inside Mai's two, very different, worlds."--Jacqueline Woodson, author of the National Book Award-winning Brown Girl Dreaming

"Lai does a superb job of creating a memorable setting and populating it with fully developed, complex characters. Gracefully written, Listen, Slowly is a sometimes humorous, always thought-provoking coming-of-age story."--Booklist (starred review)
