The third book in an exciting new Children’s Geography series, “All Across China,” provides a tour of China’s 34 provinces, municipalities, and other regions. As with “Friends and Mates in Fifty States”(Galde Press) and “All Across Canada” (Chipmunkapublishing), Ellen Weisberg, Ph.D. and Ken Yoffe, M.D. once again provide an entertaining and educational way for the whole family to learn about one of the world’s most important and interesting countries. Using the mnemonic devices of clever rhymes and naming characters after the provincial capitals, “All Across China” also includes endless fun facts and charming artwork to answer such questions as:
--Where are the Terracotta Warriors?
--What do they mean by Sichuan, Hunan, and Cantonese food?
--Where can one see the Great Wall of China?
