    About this book

With classic Chinese fairytales and folk stories, Grandma Panda's China Storybook introduces children to Chinese culture in a fun, adventurous way!
Grandma Panda is a wonderful teacher, a wonderful storyteller--and a wonderful cook! Her grandchildren Baobao and Lingling love staying with her every summer, because at Grandma Panda's house each day is an adventure. This summer, with the help of celebrated novelist and artist Mingmei Yip, Grandma will take them to a world filled with Chinese calligraphy, kites, kung fu and more!

They'll get to hear Grandma's stories of a time long ago in China, when everything began and learn simple Chinese language along the way. Come join Grandma Panda, Baobao and Lingling for a summer of fun and learning as bright watercolor illustrations make favorite legends come alive!
