C is for China
For ages 4-8. From Abacus to Lantern, from Jade to Wenzi, this photographic alphabet book introduces young readers to the rich culture and natural beauty of China. Sungwan So’s colorful variety of images explore the country’s customs ancient and modern, illustrating not only the hubbub of street life in the cities, but also the rhythms of day-to-day life in rural areas. Beautiful photographs feature scenes of old men drinking tea on the street, a little boy learning to draw in the ink-and-wash technique shuimohua, natives in textured tapestries selling food at a market, and more. Both entertaining and educational, C Is for China pays tribute to one of the world’s great cultures. —From the product description on Amazon.com

A nice intro to Chinese culture
The author has used a familiar format (A-Z) to introduce the kids the Chinese words that can be found in the daily life. The book is full of interesting authentic photographs that were taken in China. It can be used as a bilingual book to teach the kids both Chinese and English vocabulary.
