THANK YOU, MEILING Family Love, Rules and Courtesy Children’s Picture Book

Linda Talley

Price: FREE

I recently read “Thank You Meiling” to my third grade class after reading Amy Tan’s, “Moon Lady”. The text was easy for them to understand. It blended a story about a duck who needed to learn how to share and information about the Chinese celebration of Moon Festival. It kept their interest and also informed without being just “factual”. I am going to purchase a few copies to present as gifts to our daughter’s teachers each year during autumn (Moon Festival time).

Picture Book for reading with the younger child – ages 3-6

This version of THANK YOU, MEILING includes all the luminous illustrations just waiting to enchant children of any age, and especially the read-to set.

If the text-only version is better for your needs, then please click on THANK YOU, MEILING in the Text-Only Version for the serious young reader – ages 6-9.

Happy reading in either Version.

THANK YOU, MEILING will help promote courtesy in young readers’ daily lives as well as introduce them to Chinese culture.

COURTESY – THINKING OF OTHERS

Visit a Chinese village for lessons in common courtesy.

On the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month, the Song household will celebrate the Chinese Moon Festival. In preparation for this event, the boy Song Hai sets off on a shopping expedition, accompanied by an ill-mannered duck named Meiling. So begins this story of far-away customs and everyday courtesy.

Song Hai and Meiling visit the bustling town market where eager shoppers buy paper lanterns, fat mooncakes, and baskets of melons, crab apples, grapes, and other fruits that are as round as the big harvest moon.

Meiling learns all about the coming Moon Festival as she follows Song Hai on his special errands. But more important, she learns a thing or two about common courtesy-waiting her turn, saying “please” and “thank you,” helping others, and sharing.

Author Linda Talley’s whimsical story is illustrated by award-winning artist Itoko Maeno whose vivid watercolors capture the sights of a small town in southeast China-the narrow residential lanes, the marketplace with its colorful stalls, and the tidy courtyard where Song Hai and his family celebrate the Moon Festival.

As the luminous full moon rises high into the sky on this special night, Meiling enjoys her own festival treat, but not before demonstrating that she has learned her lessons in courtesy. She has learned to “stop and think of others.”

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” which includes lots of facts about The People’s Republic of China, Chinese Writing and Language, Chinese Names, as well as the Moon Festival, Phases of the Moon, Inhabitants of the Chinese Moon, and best of all, Mooncakes! This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story…the importance of courtesy to others.

So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

The Snake Who Wanted To Be A Horse (WantsToBe)

Valerie Harmon

Price: FREE

My girls (4 and 6) LOVE books and I read to them a lot. (So I believe they are experts at book reviews). The first thing they said when I finished the book is, “READ IT AGAIN!” Even my baby was captivated with the amazing illustrations filled with bright bold colors. They loved how the snake “talked” so ssssilly. 🙂 They eagerly anticipated the familiar phrase…”try it for a week!” It was a very enjoyable book for all of my children and we look forward to more books from this talented duo.

Katie Millar

This children’s picture book story is a funny silly story with an underlying theme of perseverance and a large dose of hilarious imagination. Snake has a tender belly. He thinks of an unusual solution, makes an unconventional friend and his life changes unexpectedly at the end.

Animalphabet

Mehrdokht Amini

Price: FREE

Animalphabet is cleverly written and beautifully illustrated. The images and colors will attract the attention of even very young children. The author presents both capital and small letters with a three line rhyme. She gives a real fact first and then writes something silly. As an example, “M, m is for Mischievous Mouse, Who keeps nuts in his house, Then hides them from his spouse!” As you can see, some of the vocabulary words will require explanation to younger children, but this book will definitely expand a child’s vocabulary repertoire. It is a book that will continue to be enjoyed as a child grows older and acquires more knowledge about the animals in the book. Then she will appreciate the cleverness of the rhymes and understand how the author has manipulated the language in the story.

Barbara Mojica

Beautiful illustrations of cheeky mischievous animals introduce letters of alphabet in a poetic and rhyming manner. A book for learning and pleasure that will be returned to again and again by children.
