Any baseball fans out there? Experience what it’s like to go to a baseball game in America and Japan with a Japanese American boy and his grandfathers. American baseball food means hot dogs and peanuts, but in Japan, it’s soba and edamame! Such interesting cultural differences to note but in the end, the strongest commonality is the love for the game. And time well spent with family! Aaron Meshon does a terrific job contrasting the two cultures with his easy-going, jovial illustrations. This one’s a home run.
