Learning Chinese: Through Festivals and Legends
Chinese festivals draw the community together to celebrate the well-loved traditions and to retell the familiar tales. Children love to make lanterns and to decorate dragon boats. Suns being shot down from the sky, a golden dragon springing up from a dry pond, and magpies forming a bridge for the weaver and the cowherd are delightful legends that continue to charm generation after generation. The bilingual texts in this book serve both heritage and non-heritage Chinese language learners in the western world. The intricate paper-cut illustrations invite readers to color the pages as they reflect upon the stories. The traditional crafts will enhance children¹s enjoyment of the festivals. Above all, the stories are here for all to cherish.
