About the Book

Ten explanations of varying aspects of Chinese life--from the five tones of the Chinese musical scale to the seven zones of vegetation found in China--introduce readers to China. Jim Haskin's simple text and Dennis Hockerman's stunning full-color illustrations give children an opportunity to get to know their neighbors across the Pacific.
