Allmänna fakta



This book does a good job of introducing the idea pain and sends a good message to young children. It takes the reader through the day of a Chinese family. The image in the book are delightful to look at and follow along the story very well. They show us what is happening and allow the reader to be immersed in the story. The language used is simple but portrays a deeper meaning that most kids will be able to see through the images and the story itself. Accepting who you are is a main message. I would recommend this book foor 8-9 year olds just to make sure that they can understand what the author is trying to convey.… (mer)

1. I would recommend this book at a lower elementary school level.
2.This book explains the culture of a family. The family is in the car then stops at the side of the road because they found some watercress, a plant that is quite bitter when eaten. And they start grabbing some to eat for dinner. One of the kids don't like doing that and is quite embarrassed by it. They eventually eat it later and she explains that she is embarrassed and her mom explains the story of the famine she went through when she was a kid that she lost her brother to. Then eventually the daughter understands why this is so important to their mother.
3.I would highly recommend this book to students at a lower to middle elementary school. This book shows a great explanation of culture as well as understanding. This book also shows how to communicate effectively between kid and parent to show likes and dislikes.

This book starts with the family driving down a country road in America. On the side of the road, the mother sees some watercress and the family stops. Embarrassed, the sister is upset that they are harvesting their dinner from a ditch. They go home and she refuses to eat it. The mother tells her story about her little brother who was not alive because he starved from a famine back in China when she was growing up. The daughter tried the watercress which reminded her parents of home. This could be a good book to read with a 2-4th grade class. I think that this book could be great in writing narrative short stories and talking about traditions and why we should be proud of them.… (mer)

Nice book about a girl learning to appreciate her family's culture. She didn't like the plant meal, but her mom's story changed her mind. Teaches about understanding and accepting where you come from. I would have this for primary grades.
