“The Kite That Touched the Sky” is a bilingual Chinese and English illustrated children’s book written by Mockford and Jenny Farmer and illustrated by Theresa Johnson. The story follows cousins Jason and Emily, who may live far across the world from each other, but they both dream of flying colorful kites. When they meet, they visit a kite museum, and finally at a kite festival they get to fly a kite together. But the wind is not always cooperative, and the cousins work together to overcome challenges and finally see their kite soar high to touch the sky above.
Mockford wrote the book for his grandchildren who live in China and the United States. The book is available for sale at the Fort Vancouver Visitor Center Friends’ Bookstore.
