It definitely wouldn't be enough if one is looking to have their child learn a second language, but it's still a great inclusion. There's more to good hymnal quatrains than simply rhyming the last word of the second and fourth lines.

The kids can join in with parts once it’s been read before and can add lots of extra ideas using the illustrations! With bright colors and textured details, this picture book will keep little listeners occupied with its busy illustrations. As a pairing, they are fairly silly, and when the kicker comes in—that dragons hate spicy salsa, which ignites their inner fireworks—the silliness is sillier still. There are also symbols on the banners throughout the story and if you don't know any Mandarin at all, you don't get to know what it says, which is a little disappointing for someone like me who is fascinated by languages.Gathering up his friends, who help hang lanterns every year, he chases a long red tail through his festively decorated village.

With that said, I did really enjoy most of the artwork and though the meter of the poetry is way off, it didn't bother me so much that it took too much away from the story.

It's got a lovely nod to Dragons Love Tacos as well, which is one of the greatest children's books ever written so that's nice. I understand I can change my preference through my account settings or unsubscribe directly from any marketing communications at any time.The simple and often awkward rhyming quatrains leave no room for deeper insights into Chinese culture, but each stanza does include one or two highlighted words whose Chinese translation can then be found within the illustration. Set in China during the Spring Festival, the wily dragon will have to avoid trap after trap as the kids run through paper lanterns, fireworks, the Nian lion puppet, and more! Written in rhyming text with adorable digitally painted artwork, a group of young children are chasing down a dragon. Since then he has worked for a long list of clients in the fields of Picture Books, Magazines, Toy Design, Character Design, and Advertising. On the one hand, I really wanted to enjoy the story, but on the other, it's just kind of missing the mark.

This eleventh book in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series contains both English and Chinese text. I really enjoyed this one in particular because it talks about the Chinese New Year, as well as the Chinese culture in general.

Are we to believe that there are a bunch of white, black, and Latinx kids living in a traditional country village in China that appears to have a 19th-century level of technology?

A cool added tidbit is in the back of the book, all of the text is translated side by side in Chinese.Cute story from the famous author of the "How to catch" series , but this has to be my favorite; its got a DRAGON! It has been written to meet the Year 1 expected standard and comes with a handy annotated version detailing the text-type specific features (red), grammar (green), punctuation (purple) and spelling (blue) teaching opportunities should you wish to use this text with your learners. I'm not understanding why this Chinese New Year seems to be set in the past, a pre-technology kind of feel surrounds the whole book, which wouldn't really be a problem if they book didn't include a whole bunch of characters of different diversities. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This book introduces a couple Chinese New Year traditions while the kids trying to catch a dragon while getting ready for the holiday.
