Juno's grandmother writes in Korean, and Juno writes in drawings, but that doesn't mean they can't exchange letters. From the photo his grandmother sends him, Juno can tell that she has a new cat. From the picture he makes for her, Juno's grandmother can tell that he wants her to come for a visit. So she sends Juno a miniature plane to let him know she's on the way. This tender tale is a perfect introduction to the concept of foreign cultures and far-off lands.
