Fun Chinese Character Book - Long is Dragon

My first choice is Long Is A Dragon - Chinese Writing for Kids by Peggy Goldstein is a fun book that is a great read even if you are not learning Chinese Characters.
  • It's fun to see how the Chinese characters evolved.
  • It shows for example a picture of an ox (with the horns), then the ancient Chinese Symbol that has a curved stroke that looks like a horn, and the current version that does not.
  • The book also shows you the stroke order
  • And explains what happens when you combine two words. Electricity and language, results in telephone.
  • The end of the book includes some scrolls that people put on their walls.
It's a great book and a fun activity is get a brush and paper, and have your child do some Chinese Characters for fun! This is also a great book for class room activities.
