All About China: Stories, Songs, Crafts and More for Kids
Grades 3 - 6. Price $16.95
Tuttle Publishing

All about China is available in hard cover and e-book form, so however you want to read, it’s in your format. It is a collection of cool pictures, and an encyclopedia of information about China.

In All about China, Allison “Aixin” Branscombe includes interesting things such as:

Ø                fantastic tales about the creation of the earth and the origin of the moon goddess
Ø                China’s multifaceted cultural heritage and breathtaking places
Ø                (Attempting to) solve a tangram shape puzzle
Ø                Learn about the twelve Chinese zodiac animals and how they were chosen
Ø                Try crafts and recipes for Chinese festivals and holidays
Ø                Learn a couple Chinese songs (English words and music included)
Ø                Practice Chinese calligraphy and other arts

All about China isn’t a real deep guide about China. It does scratch the surface for the younger age. If you are Christian, and want to teach a Christian world view, you will need to supplement or “correct”, as the story of creation in this book is not biblical. The gods and goddesses and religions included in this book do not touch on Christian missionaries or Chinese Christians who are suffering for their faith. Otherwise, this was an interesting book that taught a lot of interesting information about this country, some of which I never knew or realized.
