Yang the Youngest and his Terrible Ear Yang Read À PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read Yang the Youngest and his Terrible Ear Yang To Seattle Yingtao wants to learn English and make new friends at school Still he must make time to practice his violin for an important family recital to help his father get students Yingtao is afraid his screeching violin wil. I wanted to give this stars I liked that Yang and his family are Chinese immigrants and that the story made an effort to show how being an immigrant is different from being Chinese American I liked the challenges of language because learning English is hard with all its irregularities I liked the story line of two kids whose parents wanted them to be interested in one pursuit and each was decidedly interested in a different pursuit There is a lot of good in this book I couldn t give this stars though Written in 1994 I had a really hard time with understanding how a family with four children could move from China to the United States The one child policy was introduced in 1979 Prior to that having fewer children was already encouraged if not officially enforced Was the book set in an earlier time perhaps the 50s or 60s when larger families were still encouraged Was the family actually from Taiwan which is uite separate from China Based on the financial strain the family faces in the story it s hard to imagine that they had multiple children and faced potential fines in China for the sake of a large family Oh maybe they were they minorities Along with these uestions when the story takes place is also the detail that there weren t many Asians in Seattle I don t picture that being the case in the 90s Unfortunately this was a really big detail to not clarify in some way in the story Now I m thinking of giving it fewer stars but since this is a children s book and I m probably not the intended audience I ll stick with three

Yingtao is the youngest of the four Yang children and the only one who can t make music He s tone deaf He s supposed to play with his siblings in a string uartet but he d rather trade his violin for a baseball bat and glove Family obligations and social expectations Showing respect and eating with chopsticks Idiomatic confusion and cultural differences Carp in the bathtub and bow syncing in the orchestra A straightforward simple storyline suited to lower middlegrade readers The cultural tidbits are interesting and the frames of reference fascinating What is wasteful what is needful what is respectful The contrast between American assumptions and the Yang family s priorities made me pause for thought I liked it And I m glad to see that there are three books in the set one for each of the Yang siblings
