And now for another great book from one of our favorite authors!
Carole P. Roman's award winning series has traveling again and this time it's to East Asia to visit the People's Republic of China. In this book, younger readers can learn about the wide variety of climate when they read about China's vast size. They will begin their journey in China's ancient capital, Beijing, where they will discover the Imperial Palace of the Forbidden City.
Different regions of cuisine are discussed, highlighting the variety of styles and spices of food. Currency, sports, exciting tourist attractions, and a lovely description of the New Year Festivities are included in this introduction the beautiful land of China.
Miss Grace LOVES these book and all the great goodies Carol has shared with her, as we have reviewed the series (seriously she has a vase of international flags that holds center stage on top of her bookshelf)! As we had rad some books this past year on China, she was quite interested to go through this book as soon as it came in, and to use her fan and chopsticks (she still can't quite master them and it vexes her that I can,LOL). Once again Carol gives us a great book that demystifies a culture most kids don't know much about, and introduces them to common words and phrases.Another winner, and a great addition to your home resource library, before Chinese new year rolls around again!
