These books have a "China" theme to them. The kids liked them all immensely. We did a fairly large unit on China back a couple years ago. We pulled out our China lapbook. DD did a couple of the lapbook activities about China (you can find lots at homeschoolshare.com--The Story of Ping) and we made Mooncakes--here is a similar recipe.
|Oh my goodness, we all LOVED these two books by Demi. We read them over and over at the table. The Empty Pot has a lovely message to it and The Boy Who Painted Dragons has gorgeous illustrations. Highly recommend these two books! *10|
|This has a been a favorite of our for years! Another highly recommended book. *10|
|This is a chapter book I also read to DD (80pages). It is about a boy who lives with his grandfather in Chinatown.The grandfather gives him a paintbrush that is magic and brings things to life. DD and I enjoyed it. *7.5|
|We all enjoyed this version of the Magic Paintbrush. The illustrations once are beautiful (sorry I sound like a broken record in this post!). I loved the message in this tale. We would all recommend this book. *9|
|This is a folk tale about five brothers who have various abilities. A very cute story. ED especially loved this book. For some reason this book is harder for me to rate maybe 8* or 9*|
