"Everyday Life "introduces children to the vibrant world created by Shanghai's Jinshan artists. From a watermelon harvest to an autumn festival to a child's winter game, vivid, friendly peasant art brings everyday life in rural China into our lives. Simple, rhythmic poems, presented in English, Simplified Chinese, and Pinyin, beautifully accent each painting. "Everyday Life's" colorful, bustling illustrations will capture a child's imagination, while descriptive bilingual text invites English and Chinese readers to enjoy the sweetness of each page. ThingsAsian Kids presents a series of books introducing children to the beauty and wonder of Asia. Other ThingsAsian Kids books include "My Mom is a Dragon and My Dad is a Boar," a whimsical introduction to Chinese paper cut art and the lunar calendar animals; "Hiss! Pop! Boom! Celebrating Chinese New Year"; and "H is for Hong Kong," an international twist on the classic primer, featuring a lovely, hand-tinted cyanotype photograph.
