    One thought on “Good Morning China”

    1. This was one of my favorite books of the month, but not high on The Whirl Girl's list. It depicts the morning activities in a Chinese park, like exercising, painting, doing tai chi, and playing games. It has a distinctively Chinese feel but the idea of going to the park is universally familiar to kids. I liked the simplicity of it, and the delicate illustrations. But I think it wasn't quite bright or thrilling enough for The Whirl Girl. We did an activity where she had her figurine toys pretend [...]

    2. This book is incredibly simple but beautiful. My one-year-old seems captivated by it, and I like the introduction to Chinese culture. The last page holds a wonderful surprise, too. I recommend this book for babies to five year olds, although adults can appreciate it, too.

    3. Sweet, if not a bit snoozy. There's a lot of discussion about China in my household, with my children's Pop Pop traveling there frequently, so this book caught my eye. It depicts people (of indeterminate age--are they children or adults?) engaging in various activities in a Chinese park. It raised a few good questions from my preschoolers about some of the less familiar sport (Tai Chi, badminton) but I can't say it was terrifically engaging, final page fold-out notwithstanding.

    4. Pictures of people in a park doing different activities. The last pages fold out and the whole park is shown.Themes -- China, parks, morning

    5. As lush and bold as the "Shen Yun Performing Arts" dance performance I saw at the "Microsoft Theater" in April, the children's book, "Good Morning China" by Hu Young Yi is memorable in the same way for its lovely picture postcard view of life in a park in China during the beginning of the day. From early in the morning, and into the afternoon, the space teems with activity and life. Some visitors are actively involved with each other and some are silently doing their own thing alone. What I most [...]

    6. "Good Morning China" is considered a Quality Children's Book for Asian Culture. This book is beautiful and simplistic. The illustrations are soft and inviting. This book takes you through a park on a nice morning. As a reader, it sort of feels as if you are strolling through the park on a carriage, stopping for a minute at every event you encounter. We stop at a person resting by a lotus pond, people riding their bicycles, groups playing various games in the park, like chess, cards, and more. We [...]

    7. Good Morning China By: Hu Yong Yi is a story book that depicts the morning life of the Chinese culture. It displays specific physical activities that are common throughout the Chinese culture.Each activity had its on page, but on the last page revealed that they were all doing it together. This text can be used to teach children about being a community being that classroom is like a mini community. It can also be used to teach children how to work with each other. It can also promote physical ac [...]

    8. Author & artist is from Hong Kong; she studied in the US but was born & lives in Hong Kong.I love the softness of the illustrations.I also appreciate the simpleness of the text -- short, but with many distinctive cultural elements: lotus pond, tai chi, clothing.And are the really lots of people waltzing in the park in the morning in China? How delightful!

    9. I love the illustrations and thoughts of this book. Very gentle, lovely, and cheerful. I came across it on the children's shelf at the library, and what a nice, lucky find.
