Unwrapping the Story

Tiny Travelers series is amazing.  It is inspired by a world of cultures that it wants to introduce to little ones.  This quality collection takes its readers on a fun-filled journey to discover what makes each country special.

The newest contribution is "Tiny Travelers China Treasure Quest."
The rhyming book explodes with vibrant colours and happiness.  Each scenario immerses kids in a search-and-find adventure to find "treasures" (icons, animals, statues etc.) that are native to the country. China is an older country so it has a very rich cultural heritage. 

In China, we say "ni hai" and that means "hello.' 
Look for the treasures, they all have a glow.

Thus begins the discovery of:  Shanghai, The Great Wall of China, The Forbidden City, The Dragon Boat Festival, Chinese New Year, bamboo forests and pandas, Wuling Mountains, Chinese operas,  and ping pong. 

Maps are included and some vocabulary words are written in both Chinese and English.  Kids will be entertained and educated as they are immersed in the wondrous Chinese culture.  

"Xièxie or thank you,
my traveling friend.
Our amazing quest
has come to an end. "

 Highly recommended.  ( as is the whole series )
