Description - Everyday Life by Tricia Morrissey

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, 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 photographs. "
