"C is for China"

C Is for ChinaC Is for China by Robyn Chance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Purchased
Genre: Children's Picture Book

Book Description:   Through the use of ABCs, rhyme and culturally relevant images, C is for China helps readers of all ages learn something new about the unique contributions Chinese culture has made to our world.

My thoughts: This is a beautiful book. Each letter of the alphabet is used to describe a characteristic of China. both mythological and historical.

The author uses an easy rhyming pattern to add to her message and the pictures. Kids will have fun picking out the rhyming words as the learn It is easy to follow and a great way to introduce children to the Chinese culture.

Robyn Chance also tells a personal side to the story in the introduction.  I loved learning how she came to love the land of China and felt inspired to write this children's book.  She adopted a child from China and enjoyed her time there.
