Our next book is I See the Sun in China by Dedie King and illustrated by Judith Inglese. King was a Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal in the 60s. She taught school in Kathmandu and has traveled all around Asia. She has Masters of Education. Inglese has been desiging murals from tile for over thirty years. One of her murals is in the National Zoo.
I See the Sun in China is part of a series of bi-lingual picture books. Each story focuses on the day in the life of a child in a different country. The goal of the books is to teach children about different cultures. Each book also contains a glossary at the end so you and your child will know what everything means.
I really, really enjoyed this book. I have a love for learning about different cultures, and I love the idea of teaching children about life in different parts of the world. We live in such a global community now, so understanding different people is more and more valuable! Not to mention interesting. Another neat thing is that it is written in English and Mandarin Chinese, so you get to see the characters right there on each page.
