Exploring Chinatown: A Children's Guide to Chinese Culture (Hardcover)

A Parents' Choice Honors Award

By Carol Stepanchuk, Illustrated by Leland Wong

Would you like to know why dragons parade for the Chinese New Year? Or where to buy mooncakes and lichis? Do you want to visit an herb store? Or have dimsum for lunch? Would you like to write in Chinese? Or create a traditional painting? Or, maybe, to learn to play Chinese chess?

Come along on a trip to discover Chinese culture. You’ll learn about family, religion, celebrations, music, food, martial arts, and more. You’ll discover how Chinatowns came to be, and how today’s lively neighborhoods are home to culture and traditions more than 2,000 years old. Welcome to Chinatown!

This is a book for kids, families, and teachers who’d like to get more out of their visit to Chinatown than an “I escaped Alcatraz” t-shirt or oversized pencil. It’s a guide to what makes Chinese culture, well, “Chinese.” It covers almost everything, from how to order in a restaurant, and what not to do with chopsticks, to how to write characters in Chinese and how to make potstickers. It tells about herbal medicine shops, temples, and tearooms. It explains musical instruments, the designs on dishes and paintings, and the costumed characters in the New Years’ parade. It describes traditional holidays, how people celebrate and what they believe. More, it shows how, and why, North American Chinatowns were established, and why these proud, lively and vital communities exist today.

A book for ages 10 and up.

Hardcover, 64 pages, full color, bibliography, index,
