Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A simple introduction to Chinese character writing.

It's a wonderful day for a walk in the snow. Using snow as her canvas, Xiao Ming's mother teaches her son ten new Chinese characters.

Huy Voun Lee's focus on the similarity between writing Chinese characters and drawing pictures makes learning Chinese seem accessible. Simple mnemonic explanations help children learn and remember the character for each word. In the Snow is a great introduction to one of the world's oldest picture languages.

Synopsis:

A mother and son practice writing Chinese characters in the snow. Introduces the characters for ten simple words.
