Description
 
Chinese Childrens Favorite Stories is a delightful selection of thirteen Chinese folktales as retold by author and illustrator Mingmei Yip. Inspired by her beloved fathers nightly story-telling when she was a child, Yip hopes that by retelling some of these thousand-year-old Chinese stories she can pass along Chinese folklore and fables to international readers of all ages.

These beautifully illustrated tales give children in other countries a glimpse into the traditions and culture of China, while emphasizing universal lessons about being kind and successfully overcoming obstacles. Readers will encounter many delightful characters--from an angry dragon to a wise cow--in stories such as:

  • The Dream of the Butterfly--A sweet tale about accepting who you are and fully appreciating the world around you
  • Carp Jumping Over the Dragon Gate--A popular story about the rewards of hard work
  • Playing the Qin for the Water Buffalo--A musical tale that highlights empathy and understanding
  • And many more!

Recommended for children ages five to ten.
