Exploring the world with Benny: Week 1

Rather than add a booklist to my weekly report every week for Benny, I've decided to post what we're reading separately so that I can go back and pull it up more easily. Our book selections come from the available library resources for each country under the subjects of juvenile folklore or juvenile fiction. For our animals, I try to pick at least one science book and then a few fictional books as well. Last weeks topics for Benny were China and panda bears. Here a look at what we read.

For China:

  • Dragon Prince : a Chinese Beauty & the Beast Tale by Laurence Yep
  • The Enchanted Tapestry : a Chinese Folktale by Robert D. San Souci
  • The Luminous Pearl : a Chinese Folktale by Betty L. Torre
  • Rabbit's Gift : a Fable from China by George Shannon
  • The Seven Chinese Brothers by Margaret Mahy
  • The Story of Chopsticks by Ying Chang Compestine
  • The Story of Kites by Ying Chang Compestine
  • The Story of Noodles by Ying Chang Compestine
  • The Story of Paper by Ying Chang Compestine
For Pandas:
  • Giant Pandas : Gifts from China by Allan Fowler
  • Milton the Early Riser by Robert Kraus
  • Pi-shu, the Little Panda / John Butler
