The House Baba Built

by Ed Young, as told by Libby Koponen

In this moving picture book memoir by Caldecott Medalist Ed Young, he remembers his childhood in Shanghai during World War II.  Although China was at war, inside the house built by his father, Baba, Ed and his family felt safe, and soon the home grew to hold friends and even strangers.  Through it all, Ed’s childhood remained full of imagination.
