Beautiful illustrations by Pierr Morgan depict the play and creativity of a Chinese child. Carole Lexa Schaefer describes the last child in any school group line seeing his/her own thoughts come to life, in this case, through a piece of red string. The author shows off her master's in early childhood or maybe it is her experience with young children as she describes how the girl performs a child's work, play. Both writer and illustrator poetically portray a walk through Chinese cultural icons like those blue dishes and painted umbrellas. Because the little girl is so relatable, she is the perfect child's tour guide through China's cultural landmarks. I love this book because it is perfect for my student's age and comprehension level. It is a great starting point to talk about their own thoughts and imagination as well as a conversation starter for what other's may view in their imagination and why they may see things differently.
