I love children’s literacy and encourage all my students to read! Reading is a great way to boost vocabulary, comprehension, and creative thinking skills!
Happy Lunar New Year! Being an ESL teacher in the US (as opposed to an EFL teacher overseas), I know [in theory] all about my students’ special holidays, but I often forget when they actually occur. Luckily, my Chinese students reminded me of their new year this morning when they brought dumplings to class! So in honor of all my Chinese students and the Lunar New Year, here’s a reading list of young adult and middle grade novels set in China, inspired by Chinese culture, or featuring Chinese characters!
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
Grace Lin, author of the beloved Year of the Dog and Year of the Rat, returns with a wondrous story of happiness, family, and friendship. A fantasy crossed with Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a timeless adventure story in the classic tradition of The Wizard of Oz.
