ABOUT THE BOOK
ONE YOUNG BOY, JOEY, AND HIS MAGICAL PET DOG, TEE...
One Nighttime Magical And Exciting Adventure To Learn About China!
"Get ready says Tee, grab your coat, wash your face,
We're taking a trip to a wonderful place.
We're going to China it's far, not near,
We'll cross a great ocean to get there from here-
the Pacific Ocean that's deep and wide,
China we'll find on the very far side.
If we went there by plane it would take a whole day,
Pick me up and we'll go there a much faster way!"
Thus begins Joey and Tee's overnight adventure in China during which Joey learns about China's geography, size of the population, the capital city of Beijing, famous sites including Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City, The Great Wall; how to speak and write Chinese, and China's heritage of invention.
Written in rhythm and rhyme with rich accompanying illustrations, Tee Dog and the Magic Globe: China is a fun and memorable introduction for early readers to China - one of the oldest, largest, and most influential countries in the world!
"Saul Gitlin captures the imagination of anyone reading this entertaining, informative, and terrific book. His choice of words with the surprise touch of rhyme was only matched by his thoroughness and thoughtfulness of introducing another culture beyond our own. This book does what most educators and parents struggle with....and that is to insight excitement about a culture so different from ours. It makes you want to travel and see this beautiful country called China. WELL DONE!!! I hope the author doesn't stop there. So many other countries out there; have at it!"
