Shanyi goes to China. Paper of this book made it reflective when scanned. Shanyi goes to China with her brother, mother and father to visit relatives and sees the bustling streets of Hong Kong, Panyu, Aotou, Gaochang, Macau, Kowloon, and Hong Kong Island.

A Is for Abacus is the first concept in the great little book C Is for China by Sungwan So. This great little book is a worthy addition to the Round-the-World series from Frances Lincoln.

From abacus to incence, proverb and Zen, this photographic alphabet book captures the many Oriental rhythms of day-to-day life in China. It presents a colourful portrait of Chinese culture, craft and custom, and celebrates both pastoral and metropolitan life in China.

I really enjoyed reading this book and looking at the photos that accompany each letter of the alphabet. The author also did the photos and what makes this book stand out among the other Chinese ABC books is that the photos are not the glossy touristy looking photos of wealthy families and places like the Imperial or Summer palace. But instead the photos of China's people doing their day to day things. The author states that the photos where taken in Guangxi, Yunnan & Shanxi. He wanted to show that the Chinese People are hard working, they have a strong commitment to their families, religion, history, customs both modern and traditional and their hope for the future. Each photo has on the right side of the page the Chinese character for the photo each letter represents. I would have like to have seen translation on how to correctly say each word. Other than that small thing I think this is a terrific book to have in your home library or for those of you who have children from Guangxi, Ynnan or Shanxi.

Here are the letters and what each represents:

A - Abacus

B - Bicycle

C - China & it's rivers

D - Dragon

E - Excercise

F - Fengzheng ( A popular flying kite)

G - Garden

H - Herbal Medicine

I - Incense

J - Jade

K - Kitchen

L - Lanterns

M - Markets

N - Noodles

O - Old (the older generation)

P - Picture

Q - Qingming Festival

R - Remminbi - Chinese Currency

S - Singing

T - Tiaoqi ( Chinese Checkers )

U - Uniform

V - Vegetables

W - Wenzi ( Chinese Writing )

X - Xiao ( A Musical instrument from ancient times )

Z - Zen ( Major Religion commonly known as Chan )

C Is for China teaches a little bit about China with each letter of the alphabet (A is for abacus, N is for noodles, through Z is for zen). All real photographs are used. And, though the information is basic, still an interesting book and a good one to keep in the library for a supplemental book...or for when someone asks you what renminbi is (I know you get asked that regularly).

I am working with a dual language child who home language is just Mandarin. This is a great book for him. He is a Kiidergartener and very smart. It helps bring the two cultures together for both of us.

I used C is for China in my second grade class. We appreciated the authentic photography and interesting details. We also enjoyed talking about the text coming from a Chinese perspective. We really enjoyed the information about dragons and the abacus. A must have for a teaching unit about China.
