Praise for Red, White, and Boom!

 “…made to order for the summer storyhour crowd as well as quiet lapsits under a shady tree.”--School Library Journal, starred

 
Praise for Won Ton:
 
“Perfect pussycat poetry.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
 
“[A] celebration of the child-pet bond.”—Booklist, starred review
 
“Will steal the hearts of readers young and old.”—School Library Journal, starred review
 
Praise for At the Beach:
 
“Lee’s mellow-hued collages feature a multicultural crowd of beach goers, while elaborate cut-outs grace the borders, echoing the fluid line of the Chinese characters. It’s a remarkably unified effort: everything works together to create a flawless picture book.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
Praise for In the Snow:
 
“As the characters begin to build on one another, children will be able to see and appreciate the pictorial nature of Chinese writing. . . . The textured paper, vibrant winter clothing, animals in their fur and feathers, and snowflake-decorated colored borders create a lively atmosphere for this memorable lesson in Chinese writing.” —Booklist
