Image of item

Bilingual Mandarin Chinese-English edition.

"I See the Sun in China is a simple, yet accurate reflection of Chinese culture as seen through a child's eyes. The book follows a young child as she travels from a small town to the city of Shanghai, portraying the events that take place from dawn until night over the course of that one day. The unspoken message of this book is the movement from the old to the new, while still maintaining some connections with the past. It depicts some of the many choices available in China today, and the drive to be successful in a modern world. I See the Sun in China is beautifully illustrated with warm, engaging collages made from photographs, paper cut-outs, and drawings. Children will be able to recognize the similarities as well as the differences between their own culture and the culture of modern China. Written in both English and Mandarin Chinese, this book also introduces young children to the concept that not everyone uses our alphabet"--Publisher.
