We Live in China Children Around the World by Pascal Pilon, Elisabeth Thomas

How are children around the world different from us? How are they the same? In this series, readers will learn about each country's traditions and history, as well as how kids around the world spend their daily lives. In China, we meet Meihua (a girl from Beijing), Shuilin (from a smaller province of China), and Sem Dui (a boy from Tibet). Through each of these children, we learn about China's school system, traditions, history, religion, and culture - just from spending a day with them. With illustrations and photographs throughout, featuring some of the most important architecture and historical figures of the region, this book provides a great introduction to another culture.
