Recently, a new boy joined C's first grade class. This boy is from China and is just learning to speak English. C is very excited about his new friend and about the opportunity to learn a little about China.
The class has learned a few Chinese words and they even practiced drawing/writing a few of the words.
We are going to look for a few good books about China, but since many of my blogland friends have studied other countries, I thought I would begin by asking for book suggestions. If you have read any good books about China, please leave me a comment and feel free to leave a link to a post if you have one with books about China!
