Description: Take a charming tour of Chinatown!

What in the world
could you possibly see
at an old gai see,
just you and me
on a warm and easy,
slightly breezy
springtime Saturday morning?

In Cantonese, gai see means "street market," the lively place where vendors sell all their goods from open-air stalls, pushcarts, and stores. Join a curious little boy as he shops at the market with his family in every season and discovers many special treasures. From noodles in the spring to dragon fruit in the summer, from chocolate coins in the fall to firecrackers for Chinese New Year in the winter, you never know what you might find during a magical stroll through Chinatown. (40 pgs) Ages 4-8

Ashay says, "A teacher requested this book for her students.  As the children tour Chinatown they learn about what makes their culture special.  Nice story, illustrations and a glossary.  Must have for the classroom and library."
