Lee finishes the seasonal round begun with At the beach (1994) by taking a group of children to a farm in autumn, giving young Xiao Ming a chance to introduce the Chinese characters for "grain," "fire" and eight other nouns to his friends (and readers). The plot is never more than a pretext, but Lee's neat cut-paper collages, done with a mix of patterned and textured materials in warm browns and golds, capture that autumnal look and provide subtle, effective visual mnemonics for each letterform. As in previous outings, tables of the characters, English equivalents and.

Another one of my favorites, At the Beach by Huy Voun Lee, introduces a handful of characters and shows how they actually resemble their meaning. With amazing paper collage illustrations and Xiao Ming and his mother, this one includes the characters for person, big, small, sky, water, mountain, and sand. It also includes the characters that opened my eyes wide and led to my first custom made Chinese charm from Jiayin Designs that I still wear often around my neck--the characters for woman and child and how when they are put together--woman and child together--the character that results means good.

I'm a 4K teacher, and I bought this book because I have several Chinese-speaking English language learners in my class. I like the book. It is simple and incorporates both English and Chinese into the text. However, my students' parents told me that some of the characters were too complicated. I believe one parent said some of the characters were Taiwanese. If possible, get native speakers to check the book before buying it to ensure that you have the appropriate language or dialect for your students.

This was the perfect gift for our friends who adopted a little boy from China. Their family's favorite vacation spot is the beach so now they can learn some words to help him adjust to our language and them to his!

I like the peacefulness of this book in teaching a small amount of Chinese. Just a glimpse at Chinese writing.

A book that I've been searching for, AT THE BEACH teaches young children about the beauty and meaning of 10 Chinese written words - the easier, frequently used ones - all of them under seven lines that comes with pinyin pronunciation notes so kids can attempt at saying and writing them. Chinese characters are fun and pictographic as the basic words imitate natural objects around us and author Huy Voun Lee using a family's trip to the beach successfully selects ten representative ones and through conversational dialogue with cut-paper collages in summer-themed borders, the kids would learn the logic behind the words' composition. "Ren (person)" shapes like a person walking, "da (big)" looks like a person stretching out, "xiao (small) is a person putting arms down taking a bow, "tien (sky)" simply add one line to the top of "big" because sky is on top of a person and bigger than big, "shui (water) resembles drops of water, "shan (mountain)" is three peaks of mountain put together, "sha (sand)" is a combination of water, little kid and stroke. They are exactly how we will teach our youngsters about these symbols and I especially love the author to include the following three: "nu (woman)" is derived from a mother holding a baby, "zi (child)" symbolizes a child serving his parents and when one puts the two letters (woman & child), the word "hao (good)" is born. The order of how to write these words are not included but the rule of thumb is one writes from top to down and left to right.

My mom always shares with me and now my kids about a story: in ancient times, there lived a very poor family (the father had passed away) that did not have any money to buy any books nor send the child to school. The resourceful mom who learnt how to write from her late husband used a twig and every day she would write words on the sand to teach her child how to read. The poor child grew up to be one of the most respected and knowledgeable scholar in Chinese history. This book echoes with this allusion and makes it remarkably precious to introduce young children to Chinese writing ten characters at a time.

Lee, a native of Cambodia, creates a children's book that explains some Chinese language characters, characters that look like what they mean. Xiao Ming and his mother go to the beach, where Xiao Ming likes to draw Chinese characters in the sand with a stick. Xiao Ming and the reader learn 10 characters. One character is introduced per double page. They are drawn and explained, and for each character, the illustration matches the character. "Person", for example (ren/wren), looks like a person walking down a beach, right foot leading one's left. "Big", (da/dah), looks like person but with an additional horizontal line, or a person on his back with outstretched arms and legs (and thus the illustration of a person lying in the sand). The word for "sky" follows later. It adds another horizontal line to person and big, as if something is sheltering the person. Seven other words are learned ending with "Good" (hao/how), which looks remarkably like a mother holding her child at the beach. Mandarin pronunciations are used.

I discovered this book before I became a teacher, and read it to my (then) 3 year old daughter. She learned the characters from having us read her the book (at her request) night after night before bed! I love the way the characters are pictured so that children can remember the meanings, for example, standing with arms and legs spread wide to mean big, or "da" and bowed with arms at the side to represent small, or "xiao."

I teach 5 - 7 year old children at Chinese School and I use this book in class to teach the characters and I have the children actually physically "be" the character, and that helps them remember the words much easier! I have the entire series of books by Huy Voun Lee and LOVE them and have incorporated them all into my curriculum.
By drawing pictures in the sand a mother teachers her young son how to write Chinese characters. This is a marvelous idea, reminding us how thousands of years ago Chinese people took sticks and scratched pictures in the mud, thus inventing the very first Chinese characters. In this book we learn how to draw the characters for the words "person," "big," "small,""sky,""water," "mountain," "sand," "woman," "child" and "good." Through beautiful cut paper illustrations we can easily see the similarities between characters and real life objects. Huy Voun Lee is the talented writer and illustrator of two other books in this series - "In the Park" and "In the Snow." I highly recommend all three.
